Riding a quad on the roadway
I have a 2006 Polaris Magnum 330 that I use on our farm. It is a farm vehicle with the triangle on the back. I was told by the DMV that as long as I kept it under 25 mph it was legal. Yesterday I was pulled over by the local cops and they threatened to impound it. Has anyone had any experience with this?
Here are the laws I found regarding it:
California Vehicle Code:
36000. An "implement of husbandry" is a vehicle which is used exclusively in the conduct of agricultural operations.
36100. Implements of husbandry which are only incidentally operated or moved over a highway and implements of husbandry listed in Section 36005 or 36015 are exempt from registration.
36015. "Implement of husbandry" includes any farm tractor,
otherwise an implement of husbandry used upon a highway to draw a farm trailer carrying farm produce, or to draw any trailer or semitrailer carrying other implements of husbandry, between farms, or from a farm to a processing or handling point and returning with or without the trailer.
36300. Any person, while driving or operating an implement of husbandry incidentally operated or moved over a highway is not required to obtain a driver's license.
