DAR File No.: 41347
Filed: 03/07/2017 08:27:16 AM


Concise explanation of the particular statutory provisions under which the rule is enacted and how these provisions authorize or require the rule:

This rule compliments Subsection 41-22-10.7(1)(d), Vehicle Equipment Requirements, which states that the State Parks Board may designate sand dune areas that are required to have a safety flag. In addition, the Board has been granted rulemaking authority under Section 63G-3-201 as well as Section 79-4-3.

Summary of written comments received during and since the last five-year review of the rule from interested persons supporting or opposing the rule:

Over the last five years, no written comments either supporting and/or opposing this rule have been received.

Reasoned justification for continuation of the rule, including reasons why the agency disagrees with comments in opposition to the rule, if any:

This rule should be continued as it requires a specific piece of safety equipment for any off-highway vehicle (OHV) that is operated within identified riding areas of three specific sand dunes within Utah. This rule has assisted in reducing accidents and injuries associated with off-highway vehicle operation in these three specific sand dune areas.
