Marble Hill, Mo., like many small communities in this section of the state, is considering allowing its residents to operate utility vehicles within the city limits.
The proposal would require a $15 licensing fee for vehicles such as golf carts, four-wheelers and other motorized vehicles that operate with the use of a steering column.
This is a sign of the times. With gas prices hampering low- and middle-income families, cities are trying to find ways to save their residents some money on gasoline costs.
In Marble Hill, the matter is still being debated.
There are safety concerns with this type of vehicle use, however. Before driving an ATV within the city limits, it's important that drivers are aware of the laws that exist and also what their insurance will cover. Insurance companies may not cover ATV accidents that happen on public roads and streets.
