I just found out that the off road vehicle act changed last year and I have some questions as to where it applys.

section 14 states
Subject to the regulations, a person must not use or operate, or authorize or permit another person to use or operate, an off-road vehicle on Crown land or prescribed private land unless one of the following applies:

(a) the off-road vehicle is registered with the Insurance Corporation of British Columbia under this Act;
(b) the off-road vehicle is registered and licensed under the Motor Vehicle Act or the Commercial Transport Act;

So I have a regular vehicle insured with ICBC and registered under the MVA that I'm going to be taking offroad. When does the ORVA apply to me, is it when I hit a BC FSR, is it when I go into a trail onto crown land, or am I mistaken and the ORVA is just for quads and non-insurable vehicles?

Key components of the ORV Management Framework include:

Expanded definition of ORVs:

ORV laws apply to a wide range of vehicles operated on Crown land.
ORVs are used for work and leisure purposes.
Types of ORVs include snowmobiles, all-terrain vehicles (aka “Quads”), off-road motorcycles (i.e. dirt bikes), side-by-sides (e.g. “argos”, “rhinos” and “razors”) and, to address safety/use matters, small on-highway motor vehicles (e.g. jeeps, trucks, SUVs).
The ORV Act applies on all crown land and resource routes however certain privately held and local government owned land like greenbelts and parks can be administered within the authority of the Act as well. So yes, essentially any of the trails or forestry service roads that you would be likely to go down would be administered by the Off Road Vehicle Act and the Forest and Range Practices Act, among others.
nabs - Brianrietta are you trying to Mindbomber me? using big words to try to confuse me
jasonturbo - Threesomes: overrated - I didn't really think it was anything special, plus it was degrading, marching to the bathroom to fart all that semen out
Babykiller - And next to that, there's a little dot called a period. It's not the stuff you eat out of your sisters gash, it's a handy little tool for breaking up sentences so they don't look like nonsensical retard garbage.
