ATV Safety PDF Print E-mail

Although some experts believe it's unsafe, period, for children under 16 to ride an ATV, the industry's ATV Safety Institute offers this advice:

* Always ride an ATV that's right for your age. The guidelines are:

Age 6 and older- engine size under 70cc
Age 12 and older- 70cc-90cc
Age 16 and older- over 90cc

* Always wear a helmet and other protective gear, such as boots and elbow pads.
* Never carry a passenger.
* Never ride on public roads.
* Supervise riders younger than 16; ATVs are not toys.
