321G.25  Stopping and inspecting--warnings.

A peace officer may stop and inspect an all-terrain vehicle or snowmobile operated, parked, or stored on public streets, highways, public lands, or frozen waters of the state to determine if the all-terrain vehicle or snowmobile is registered, numbered, or equipped as required by this chapter and commission rules. The officer shall not inspect an area that is not essential to determine compliance with the requirements. If the officer determines that the all-terrain vehicle or snowmobile is not in compliance, the officer may issue a warning memorandum to the operator and forward a copy to the commission. The warning memorandum shall indicate the items found not in compliance and shall direct the owner or operator of the all-terrain vehicle or snowmobile to have the all-terrain vehicle or snowmobile in compliance and return a copy of the warning memorandum with the proof of compliance to the commission within fourteen days. If the proof of compliance is not provided within fourteen days, the owner or operator is in violation of this chapter.
