FAIRBANKS, Alaska (KTVF) - Alaskans are running out of time to comment on a controversial regulation change in the state.

As we’ve reported, the Alaska Department of Public Safety (DPS) and the Department of Administration have proposed allowing all-terrain vehicles and snowmachines on public roads with a speed limit of up to 45 miles per hour.

Some have objected to the move, with resolutions on the table before both the Fairbanks City Council and the Fairbanks North Star Borough Assembly opposing the change.

Public comment for the regulation changes ends on April 18th.

According to their website, after that period ends, DPS will either adopt the changes or take no action.

DPS is encouraging people to comment if their interests could be affected by the move.

Comment can be submitted by email at, via fax at (907) 269-5616, or submitted directly through the State’s website.
