Children younger than 16 should not ride on an Adult ATV. They are twice as likely to be injured while riding an Adult ATV than a Youth ATV. By following these key safety tips, hundreds of deaths and thousands of injuries related to ATVs could be prevented.

  • Ride an ATV that is right for your age
  • Always wear a helmet
  • Stay off paved roads and avoid unfamiliar terrain
  • Supervise riders younger than 16
  • Never carry a passenger on a single-rider ATV
  • Never ride under the influence of alcohol or drugs
