About ATV Safety
Many agriculturalists enjoy the freedom that all-terrain vehicles (ATVs) provide, since these vehicles can operate efficiently in a wide variety of environments. Whether cruising through a muddy field or traveling over rocky landscapes, ATVs are frequently used as a dependable form of transportation on farms and ranches alike.
The United States Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) reports that ATV injuries and fatalities have been on a decline since 2007. However, 385 ATV-related fatalities and 93,700 ATV-related injuries requiring emergency room care were still reported in 2014. In order to further reduce these statistics, it is recommended that age-appropriate riders prevent themselves from ATV accidents by wearing helmets and safety gear, receiving training from a qualified instructor, and staying off paved roads whenever possible.
