Wednesday, January 29, 2014

NOHVCC - Tennessee will host its first annual OHV Day on the Hill Tuesday, April 1, during the 108th Tennessee General Assembly, now in session. State legislators will have the opportunity to view table displays from industry leaders and meet OHV enthusiasts from across the state, as they gather at the state capitol to experience the state legislative process at work.

OHV, which stands for Off-Highway Vehicle, is a recreational group that is comprised of more than 909,000 users in the state of Tennessee with an estimated $3.4 billion economic impact to state and local economies. OHV encompasses several offroad vehicle types including: All Terrain Vehicles, Offroad Motorcycles, 4x4's, hybrid buggies and Side by Sides, with more variations being developed each year.

During the OHV Day on the Hill, organizers plan on highlighting the positive aspects of responsible OHV recreation, with a special emphasis on child safety.
