NYE COUNTY LAWS REGARDING OPERATING YOUR OHV ON THE HIGHWAY

 

Nevada Law (NRS 490.100)  allows a county to pass an ordinance designating any portion of a highway within the County as permissible for the operation of off-highway vehicles for the purpose of allowing off-highway vehicles to reach a private or public area that is open for use by off-highway vehicles.

 

A person operating an off-highway vehicle on a highway designated for operation of off-highway vehicles pursuant to this NRS may not operate the off-highway vehicle on the highway for any purpose other than to travel to or from the private or public area.

 

The Nye County Board of County Commissioners designates all paved portions of county highways within the unincorporated areas of Nye County for the operation and use of off highway vehicles.  (NCC 10.10.070)

 

State highways (SR 160, 372, 95 etc) are not designated for OHV use.  To cross state highways, you must come to a complete stop before crossing and cross as close as practicable to perpendicular to the direction of travel.  (NRS 490.090.2(a) NCC 10.10.080)

 

"Highway" is the entire width between the boundary lines of every way maintained by a public authority when any part of such way is open to the use of the public for purposes of vehicular traffic.  (NCC 10.10.040)
