On Saturday afternoon, January 24, Grey County OPP officers were conducting motorized snow vehicle patrols on an Ontario Federation of Snowmobile Club (OFSC) trail in the Municipality of Grey Highlands. As a result, two snowmobile operators were charged under the Motorized Snow Vehicles Act (MSVA).
Lee Keffer, age 48, of Melancthon Twp., was issued a Provincial Offence Notice (PON) for failing to notify change of ownership.
April Tindall, age 40, of Mapleton Twp., was issued a PON for failing to display evidence of permit.
Grey County OPP remind snowmobilers that many of the rules governing motor vehicle drivers apply to snowmobile operators. Failure to comply with the law may carry penalties such as fines, loss of driver’s licence and criminal charges.
To ride legally, snowmobile operators must always carry a valid driver’s licence (or if under age 16, a Snow Vehicle Operator’s Licence); proof of snowmobile ownership; snowmobile registration; proof of snowmobile insurance; and a valid OFSC Snowmobile Trail Permit if snowmobiling on an OFSC trail.
