Amen--I thought I was the only one who felt this way. I agree ready to bust out of this joint and go where my children can be children again. Sorry they don't enjoy tennis or golf like the rest in my neighborhood. But that is right, skateboarding off the picnic tables is okay though right?

NCDOT Division of Motor Vehicles: Do I need to register this type of vehicle?

North Carolina General Statutes 20‑111 notes the violation of registration provisions. Here it states that it is unlawful for any person to drive a vehicle on a highway, or knowingly permit a vehicle owned by that person to be driven on a highway, when the vehicle is not registered with the Division or does not display a current registration plate. The penalties are not listed here so we continue to look at NC laws.
NC Statute 20‑118.3 is titled vehicle or combination of vehicles operated without registration plate subject to civil penalty. Here it states that:
Any vehicle or combination of vehicles being operated upon the highway of this State either by a resident or nonresident without having been issued therefore a registration plate by the appropriate jurisdiction shall be subject to a civil penalty equal to the North Carolina annual fee for the gross weight of the vehicle and in addition thereto the license fee applicable for the remainder of the current registration year, provided a nonresident shall pay the North Carolina license fee or furnish satisfactory proof of payment of required registration fee to its base jurisdiction.

But is the neighborhood street a "highway"

We've been told that anything more than 3 people together just wandering the streets constitutes a gang. Now, I am not thinking that these guys are forming a gang...just wondering where their parents are. Why would they let their young kids wander about at 11.00 at night?? Guess we have another troubled rental house on the block...
YES it MUST be those renters! Homeowners would never let their children do such a thing .

Boys roaming the neighborhood on summer vacation sounds pretty normal to me. I do not live in the ghetto either.

I used to ride my 80cc Honda trailbike down Sharonview Rd with a BB gun hanging out of my backpack.
We would ride to what is now Giverny or Morrocroft Estates to ride in the woods and shoot stuff.
An officer stopped me once and asked if I would ride on the sidewalk instead.

My how times have changed.
How did the laid back South of my youth become so uptight??

Just a sidenote here . . . but I thought the whole purpose of ATVs was for riding on "all terrain" - meaning - dirt, grass, mud, etc - but not streets. We have "street bikes" and "ATVs" - and I have never even seen anyone ride an ATV on a street. Now, Mopeds . . . that's another thing, of course.

But I assume the parents had to buy the ATVs and bought them for weekends and riding out in open fields. . . isn't that why folks buy them? Doesn't it wear out the tires fast to ride them on pavement?

Yes, ATV tires will have a very short lifespan on pavement.
