My son is 9 and has a Ovation.  If the sled has license and insurance can he drive it on the lake?

As long as he is not on a trail or roadway he may drive the sled.  I'd check with your insurance to see if they will honour coverage however.

Are you sure I thought someone under 12 years old  can drive on private property ,a lake is public property.

Nobody can drive on private property without permission.  A kid (under 12) can ride on Crown land so long as an adult has them in their sights.

Yes I'm sure.  You do have to be at least 12 to get an MSV licence and ride trails.

Hi Sean, While having breakfast with our riding group this morning, it was mentioned that there are some new laws out regarding sledding, basically  if we got caught going 50kph over the speed limit on our sleds, we could be charged with careless driving and the sled could be impounded, and our license could be suspended.

IS all of this true, I can see the fine, but all the other stuff ? I sure hope not. LOL

Ahhh....  where to begin on this??  Friends and rumours, eh?  Reminds of the old trailer hitch rumour. 

Firstly.   No new laws.  Secondly: a careless charge COULD be laid but that is simply a fine.  No suspensions, seizures etc.  

The bad news? When the stunt driving (50 over law) came out it included sleds BUT ONLY IN VERY SPECIFIC CONDITIONS.  You'd have to be traveling on the road and traveling above the legal sled limit.  IE say riding along an 80km/hr hwy you are limited to 50km/h.  So technically if you are riding at 100km/h or above you could theoretically be charged under that law and lose your sled and  licence for 7 days.  I've only ever heard of this once.  And it was a bad combo of a overly eager/strict (other descriptive words) cop and equally stubborn, non friendly sledder...  

Long story short...  you're friends owe you a few drinks!  I'm partial to rye and ginger... just sayin...

Hi Sean, Thanks for getting back to me .

That,s why I ask you this stuff, so we can put rumors to bed quickly.

Awesome, guess I can go ahead and price out a new Yamaha Sidewinder. LOL

And if I ever get the chance to meet up with you, I will get you that rye and ginger, but I might have to sneak into the bush to mix it up for you. LOL
