It shall be unlawful for any person to operate any motorized vehicle, including motorcycles, snowmobiles, minibikes, trail bikes, motor scooters, go-carts, motorized skateboards, all-terrain vehicles (ATVs) and dune buggies or any other vehicle in the class known as "recreational vehicles" on any property or under any circumstances described in § 212-2 hereof.

The property to be regulated by this chapter is as follows:
A. 
All privately owned property and publicly owned property off the improved right-of-way, except driveways leading to and from the public right-of-way and residential right-of-way.
The Township Council hereby enacts this chapter because it finds that operation of such motorized vehicles has been conducted:
A. 
In a manner so as to create loud, unnecessary or unusual noise so as to disturb or interfere with the peace, quiet and tranquility of others.
B. 
In a careless, reckless or negligent manner so as to endanger or be likely to endanger the safety of others or the property of others.
The terms and provisions of this chapter shall not be applicable to police or other emergency vehicles, including but not limited to ambulances, motorcycles, fire control vehicles and the like, or to motorized lawnmowers, tractors or farm vehicles or construction equipment.
The Division of Police of the Department of Public Safety is hereby authorized to confiscate and impound any motorized vehicle which is allegedly operated in violation of the terms of this chapter.
[Amended 9-25-78 by Ord. No. 78-61]
Notwithstanding anything contained in this chapter to the contrary, application may be made to the East Brunswick Township Council to obtain a permit for a time period not exceeding three (3) months for the use of any vehicle regulated by this chapter on specific property. Notice of the application shall be served on all residents and owners of property within two hundred (200) feet of the subject property. The Council may issue a permit for the property if it finds that the proposed area shall be sufficient for the intended purpose, that adequate parking is available, that the means of ingress and egress are adequate to prevent traffic hazard, congestion or excessive interference with normal traffic movement on adjacent public streets and thoroughfares and that the property can be so used without adversely affecting the neighborhood. The permit shall be deemed to have been automatically renewed for additional periods of three (3) months each if no written complaint has been filed with the Township Clerk. If a written complaint has been filed with the Township Clerk, notice of same shall be served upon the holder of the permit and the permit shall expire at the end of the three-month period in questions unless a new application is filed and approved as set forth herein.
