All-Terrain Vehicle (ATV) Safety

Date:Nov 19, 2020

All-terrain vehicles (ATVs) are off-road vehicles often used for recreation. In most states, it's legal for older kids and teens to ride them, even without a driver's license. But with the thrills come major safety risks.

ATVs can be unstable and hard to control, particularly at high speeds. Rollovers and collisions happen often, and some of these are fatal. Injuries from riding ATVs are common too and can mean an emergency-room visit. As a result, the American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) discourages kids and teens ages 16 or younger from driving or riding on ATVs.

If you decide to let your child ride an ATV, make sure he or she follows safety precautions and understands how to safely operate the vehicle. While this helps to reduce the risk of injury or death, the only way to truly keep kids safe is to prevent them from riding ATVs.

Winter is coming ,and many hunters go to mountains or forests for hunting, the ATV is the best choice to drive there. And UTV is safer for women and children. Also it is suggested to go by two vehicles to help each other when accsidently go into a marsh or deep creek. Most of all you should take the winch with you.
