In maryland you are not allowed to ride anything on the road other then a tagged vehicle. I have seen some in an emergency get away with it, but it better be legit, and it was a snowmobile not a ATV.

in WV you are in many counties even without snow. and PA is by the county also. Alot has to do with the size of the roads. if they don't have lines normally they are fair game.

I have ridden in maryland on snowy roads, but never if there is other traffic. I don't want someone getting freaked out that I am on the road cause they weren't expecting it and then crash.

In idaho i have been told there is no state law against riding on the roads. However, there is a federal law that says it is illegal. My buddy says as long as you never run into a federal agent you are fine. I see them all the time on the road. My buddy drives his to and from work everyday in the summer. I have thought about it, but i live 1/2 mile from work. It snowed the other day here and i was driving the roads doing doughnuts and what not.
