Off-road bans lifted

Effective noon Wednesday, off-road vehicles will be permitted on Crown land throughout B.C.

Cooler weather and recent rain has reduced the flammability of fuels in the region, according to the provincial government.

There has been a significant reduction in the chance of a wildfire starting from a spark or hot engine.

The B.C. Wildfire Service is reminding the public that some local area restrictions are still in place.

These areas include Crown land near large wildfires in the Cariboo, Kamloops, Southeast Fire Centre so firefighting options can continue efficiently.

“The use of off-road vehicles will continue to be prohibited in the restricted areas around these wildfires,” states a media release.

People found in contravention of area restrictions can be issued a fine of $767.
