All-Terrain Vehicle Safety Tips
While riding all terrain vehicles is an awesome way to get outside and kick up the dirt, it is important to be fully aware of your safety. An ATV can weigh up to 600 pounds and can travel more than 70 miles per hour. Statistics show that every year ATV related accidents claim hundreds of lives and injuries number up in the hundreds of thousands. Many of these accidents can be prevented by following safety guidelines. Even though laws vary by state, follow these safety guidelines for a safe all terrain adventure.

Know how to properly ride your ATV by taking training lessons which teach you how to control your vehicle under emergency situations, as well as normal riding.

Always wear a properly fitted helmet, long-sleeve shirt, pants, over-the-ankle boots, gloves and goggles so you are fully protected.

All terrain vehicles are difficult to control on paved roads, and are intended for riding off-road, so avoid driving your ATV on a paved road unless you are crossing one.

When driving an ATV, never drive a passenger unless your ATV is designed to do so because the driver needs to be able to shift their weight to accommodate the terrain.

Remember to always ride at safe speeds, stay on designated trails and only ride during good visibility and not at night. More safety tips can be found here at the ATV Safety Institute’s online booklet, “Tips and Practice Guide for the All-Terrain Rider”.
