Abandoned ATVs, Minibikes or UTVs
Once it has been established by a law enforcement agency that an ATV, minibike or UTV has been abandoned, and after specific guidelines for owner notification have been met, a Certificate of Title is issued with the brand “Abandoned” noted in the Previous Title Number position. The County Treasurer issues abandoned titles to the law enforcement agency under whose jurisdiction the ATV, minibike or UTV was abandoned.
An ATV, minibike or UTV may be considered abandoned by law enforcement if left unattended:
After the abandoned title has been issued, the law enforcement agency is charged with final disposition of the ATV, minibike or UTV.
Public property is defined as any public right-of-way, street, highway, alley, park or other state, county or municipally owned property. All other property is defined as private.
If an ATV, minibike or UTV has been left after storage or repair work has been completed, refer to Storage-Repair Lien procedures.
