So, is it up to law enforcement or property management? According to Trooper Steve, you’ve first got to evaluate your surroundings.

“When it comes down to enforcing law, traffic rules or anything like that, they do not get enforced on private property,” he said. “So if you own, say, a plot of land, you’re out there on your 4-wheeler; that’s your land, that’s your 4-wheeler, you wouldn’t be enforced by law enforcement until you took that 4-wheeler and then drove it onto a local residential road.”

Once you’re off that road and on a lot, new rules apply.

“So in a community like this, it would be up to the management to enforce stuff like this — a homeowners’ association, property management etc. — they can encourage or request law enforcement’s presence to enforce stuff like this,” he said. “At the end of the day, if you live somewhere like this, make contact with your management and go from there.”
