Learn the rules of off-road.
Operating an ATV carries risks for injury. In recent years, national numbers indicate there are over 130,000 ATV-related ER visits annually. An estimated 25 percent of those visits are children under 16. Knowing the rules of off-road can play a part in not only reducing injury, but also in reducing the severity of accidents.
With local partners, Alliance Safety Council advocates and promotes ATV safety through awareness and safety demonstrations. Read the ATV safety tips and contact us for addtional program information.
