Shippagan has granted ATV enthusiasts year-round access to some of its streets.

ATVs had permitted on several streets between November and April and the town's council unanimously accepted the request of a local ATV club for year-round access on Monday.

Mayor Anita Savoie-Robichaud says club members have done a good job in recent years of respecting the rules.

Club president Glenda Robichaud says the decision will have a positive impact on both tourism and the economy.
