DARLINGTON - The Lafayette County Sheriff's Department reminded residents Tuesday of proper ATV practices after an increase in ATV and UTV use throughout the county. In a public notice, Lafayette County Sheriff Reg Gill, Darlington Police Chief Jason King and warden Nick Webster of the Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources cited recent UTV crashes in the county and "the ever increasing volume of ATV/UTV operation throughout all of Lafayette County" as the impetus to remind ATV and UTV operators to drive responsibly. The notice reminds drivers that ATVs are only allowed on roads that are properly labeled to be "open to ATV/UTV traffic."
