ATV Insurance

 

As warmer weather approaches, more people will be using all-terrain vehicles (ATV) for recreation. While riding an ATV is a fun activity, they can be extremely dangerous. In fact, in the last 10 years, there have been hundreds of ATV-related deaths across Canada.

Here’s how to keep you and your family safe while operating an ATV:

·        Read the operator’s manual and attend ATV instruction classes before riding.

·        Wear gloves to reduce vibration pressure and to improve grip.

·        Wear boots to maintain balance and control, protect feet and legs from debris, and maintain sound footing.

·        Wear a long-sleeve shirt and pants to avoid burns and scratches.

·        Always be aware of your surroundings. Watch out for wildlife, pedestrians, other ATVs and hazards, such as rocks, branches, and unstable surfaces.

·        Drive at safe speeds, taking weather conditions and the terrain into account.

·        Never carry additional passengers or operate an ATV while under the influence of drugs or alcohol.

·        Always ride the right size ATV by following the manufacturer’s recommendations.
