A. NFS roads can provide connections between OHV trails and offer important opportunities for OHV recreation. Some NFS roads receive only limited traffic by highway-legal vehicles. The Forest Service anticipates designating some roads or sections of roads as open to both highway-legal vehicles and non-highway-legal OHVs. Designating roads for this mixed use involves safety considerations such as traffic composition, traffic volume, and road standards. Decisions affecting safety must be informed by engineering judgment. Traffic on roads is subject to state traffic laws except when in conflict with designations established under this final rule.
