(1)Existing law, commencing January 1, 2013, establishes rules for the operation of, and requirements for equipment of, an off-highway vehicle, including prohibiting a person who is operating a recreational off-highway vehicle from allowing a passenger to occupy a separate seat location not designed and provided by the manufacturer for a passenger. Existing law, commencing January 1, 2013, prohibits a person operating a recreational off-highway vehicle from riding with a passenger, unless the passenger, among other things, have both feet flat on the floorboard.

This bill would delay operation of the prohibition that a person operating a recreational off-highway vehicle shall not allow a passenger to occupy a separate seat location not designed and provided by the manufacturer for a passenger until July 1, 2013, and would eliminate the requirement that both of the passengers feet must be flat on the floorboard.

(2)This bill would declare that it is to take effect immediately as an urgency statute. Hide
