Analysis by the Legislative Reference Bureau
This bill establishes an absolute sobriety requirement for the purpose of
operating a snowmobile for any person under the age of 21. Under current law, no
one may operate an all-terrain vehicle, utility terrain vehicle, off-highway
motorcycle, boat, or snowmobile (recreational vehicle) with a prohibited alcohol
concentration. Under most circumstances, a prohibited alcohol concentration is 0.08.
For a person who has not attained the age of 21, current law requires absolute
sobriety for the purpose of operating any recreational vehicle except for snowmobiles.
For the purpose of operating a snowmobile, absolute sobriety is required for a person
who has not attained the age of 19. This bill increases this age so that the absolute
sobriety requirement applies to a person under the age of 21 operating any
recreational vehicle.
