Wis. ATV's must display rear plates
As of July 1, 2012, all ATVs and UTVs in Wisconsin are required to have a rear license plate, making them easier to identify when caught being ridden where it is not legal to do so.
However, the Department of Natural Resources is not providing plates. ATV owners are responsible for making their own to display the vehicles' registration ID numbers. The new law only requires the plates to be 4 inches high and 7.5 inches wide, white with black lettering at least 1.5 inches high.
Garry Eddy, ATV administrator for the DNR Bureau of Law Enforcement, said the legislation to require rear plates on ATVs was supported by ATV organizations and public land managers.
"The rules are modeled after similar rules in place in Minnesota," Eddy said, according to Walworth County Today.
