Snowmobiles may be operated on Grand Traverse County roads only at the extreme right side of the road right-of-way, with the flow of traffic and in accordance with Public Act Number 178 of 1971.
The road surface may be used when necessary to cross a bridge or culvert or to cross at a right angle to the road.
Snowmobiles must come to a complete stop before entering the roadway and must yield to approaching highway vehicles.
Snowmobile operation on the roadway damages the road surface, obstructs snow removal equipment and is illegal.
