Take a safety course – learn how to operate safely. Those who have taken a safety course are less likely to be injured.

Always were protective gear – a helmet can save your life. Be sure your helmet is certified by the U.S. Department of Transportation (DOT) and/or the Snell Memorial Foundation. Wearing long pants, long sleeves and boots will also help to protect you.

Don’t carry a passenger unless it is created for two passengers – most ATV’s are not designed for two. Those that are will specifically say so. Unless it is designed to carry two, never carry a passenger.

Drive only on designated ATV trails – not only is it illegal to drive an ATV on paved roads, it is dangerous. Stay off roadways.

Monitor children – ATV’s are not made for children to drive. Do not let your children operate an ATV.
