The Shelby County Sheriff Office has advised that, due to the number of complaints and damage by All Terrain Vehicles (ATV’s), they are instituting a “zero tolerance policy" on illegal use of ATV’s. Violators will receive a citation.
ATV’s may NOT be operated on City streets, on public property or on private property without advance authorization of the property owner.
Residents noting illegal usage of ATV should contact the Shelby County Sheriff at 901-379-7625. (Only call 9-1-1 if it is a life threatening matter.) The Shelby County Sheriff has been excellent about responding, but many times it is not possible for them to respond while the ATV is there.
Residents should not personally confront the ATV violator.
The City is also emphasizing that ATV use on City streets or on public property (parks, etc.) is illegal and is blocking entrances to areas where ATV’s can illegally access public property.
We appreicate residents calling the Shelby County Sheriff on illegal usage of ATV's and similar equipment.
