While they can vary by municipality, there are several laws and guidelines to follow while using your riding lawn mower. A common restriction for time usage prohibits mowing between 10pm and 7am. This lets your neighbors sleep peacefully and honestly, how good could your stripes be mowing your lawn by moonlight? It’s also illegal to operate lawn tractors on public roads, since they’re not licensed, and any typical traffic offense would result in additional fines and charges. More and more cities are also making it mandatory to cut your grass and keep it below a certain height. This varies from under 3in. all the way up to 12in! Just remember to exercise proper lawn etiquette and respect your neighbors and please, feel free to share any odd lawn care laws you've heard!
