We enjoy not being told how to maintain our home and property to fit in with the neighborhood and contrary to many beliefs it is cheaper to live in the country. I realize that many prefer city life and the closeness of people and stores. We have tried both and will never go back to city life until we are unable to make our own decisions. Just being able to ride my UTV to the neighbors is a big plus and I can store my motorhome in my drive and my boat without any community violations. If ya want to have toys that you can actually use you need to try country life!
I think that's what I plan on doing when I move in a few years. Actually the neighboring small towns to mine have a much more relaxed attitude toward atvs and utvs on secondary roads. It's honestly just the cops in our litle town that have a problem with it. Its one of those little towns where if you go 5 mph over the speed limit, you'll get pulled over. But if you live even a mile outside of city limits, you'd never see a cop unless you called them to come out. Its not a bad place to live but just don't ride your atv in town because if they see you, they will pull you over. Its happened to me a couple times, both about 2 years apart. I only got a warning but I had to turn around and go back home while being followed. Its just not worth the hassle anymore. Utvs can be registered with city hall though but you have to spend extra to get turn signals installed. And golf carts as well, those are just flat out annoying. Fortunately, few people seem to have them as I seldom see any of them on the road.
