ATV Crack Down
It's now a "zero tolerance" policy that Levy county deputies say, they will strictly enforce.
"You cannot drive a motorcycle or ATV on the right of way in Levy county," said Major Evan Sullivan.
ATV's can only be driven on private property, a county ordinance since 2006 that's been revisited, after two separate tragedies over the weekend.
Cheyenne Ellis, 12, of Trenton lost control of an ATV on Saturday, and was killed on a lime rock road in the Gulf Hammock Hunt Club.
On Sunday, Lucas Corbitt, 22, was killed after his ATV struck an embankment off a dirt road.
Details like how fast the drivers were going at the time of the crashes are still being investigated.
"The kids need to realize that they're driving something that's a few thousand pounds and it can be very dangerous, whether you're driving ten miles an hour or fifty miles and hour," he said.
