Maine Adds Hit-And-Run Law For Snowmobiles

Beginning this fall, a new law in Maine will make it a felony not to report snowmobile accidents that cause injury or death. It will also be illegal to leave the scene of that accident.

The law will cover ATV and boating accidents, as well.

The law was prompted after a fatal snowmobile hit-and-run in December 2002. The law will carry a penalty of up to five years in prison.
