(Horicon) Horicon residents can now operate ATV’s and UTV’s on city streets. Signage for designated routes was recently installed by the city’s Department of Public Works and more signage was installed by the county Monday.

The Horicon Police Department says no ATV or UTV may be driven between the hours of 10pm and 6am. They add that no one under the age of 16 can drive such vehicles along designated city routes. Those above 16 must have a valid driver’s license and a DNR safety certificate. All riders under the age of 18 must wear protective headgear and no one can operate an ATV or UTV without a safety belt.
