    Ive read afew articles where people have done roadtrips on their riding lawnmowers in the south of the US... the Ontario Highway Traffic Act says a farm vehicle can use a public road aslong as it is travelling below 40km/hr but I believe the intent on this is to travel from farm to farm and to...
