Driving off road vehicles within the City of Portage is illegal.

This reminder is from the Portage detachment of the RCMP.

Constable Dave Spakowski explains riding off-road vehicles within the city is dangerous for everyone, including the riders.

These machines are not equipped with safety features needed for city driving.

Spakowski explains the RCMP does not have to catch riders in the city to charge them, if they receive a tip they can go to the owners home and lay a charge.

He encourages anyone who sees illegal riding to report it.
