ATV Vehicles are enthralling and fun to use. But you need to be cautious while using and riding it. Off-roading poses several obstacles, such as rocks, water and mud that can cause accidents. Check out this brief guide to know how you can prevent and defend yourself or your loved ones from an injury while using ATV Vehicles.
Wear a Helmet
Helmets can protect you from ATV Vehicle Accidents
Helmet wearing can reduce the risk of serious injuries in ATV accidents. In fact, researches around the world suggest that helmets can reduce the risk of fatal head injuries by 42 percent and non-fatal head injuries by 64 percent. So, even if you are driving a kilometer, ensure that you wear a helmet.
Don’t Have a Passenger
It may certainly sound a fun idea to carry a passenger on an off road vehicle that has a single seat. But seriously! It isn’t funny. ATVs are designed to be interactive and not for interaction. Therefore, you need to be able to shift your weight freely in all directions. So, don’t drive ATV with a passenger or ride with a driver.
Don’t Use it on Paved Roads
ATVs are designed to be off-road and not for the regular roads. So, avoid driving them on paved roads as it can be difficult to control their speed. Most of the ATV related injuries occur due to collision with cars on paved roads.
Most importantly, buy ATV from a reputed company and its registered dealer.
