          9. a. Every person operating a snowmobile, all-terrain vehicle, or dirt bike registered or transferred in accordance with any of the provisions of P.L.1973, c.307 (C.39:3C-1 et seq.) shall, upon demand of any law enforcement officer, duly authorized conservation police officer of the Division of Fish and Wildlife or park police officer or law enforcement operation officer of the Division of Parks and Forestry within the Department of Environmental Protection, or any other police officer, produce for inspection the certificate of registration and shall furnish to the officer any information necessary for the identification of the snowmobile, all-terrain vehicle, or dirt bike and its owner.

The failure to produce the certificate when operating a snowmobile, all-terrain vehicle, or dirt bike on public lands or waters, or when crossing a public highway, shall be presumptive evidence in any court of competent jurisdiction of the operation of the snowmobile, all-terrain vehicle, or dirt bike in violation of the requirement in subsection c. of section 16 of P.L.1973, c.307 (C.39:3C-16).
