June’s Safety Message
Riding ATV’s Can be Fun and Dangerous!
Riding ATVs are not only a fun way to experience summer, but they can be a useful tool for farm and ranch work. However, hundreds of child injuries and deaths occur each year because of improper and unsafe use of ATVs.
Children using ATVs must take extra precautions and take care to use them safely. The following are recommended ways to prevent injury and enjoy riding ATVs:
• Wear a helmet at all times
• Children never ride on adult ATVs
• Never ride ATVs in tandem
• Never carry extra riders
• Keep ATVs for off-road use – never ride on or near public roads
• Learn to ride safely – take a safety course
