All-Terrain Vehicle (ATV) Safety

All-Terrain Vehicle (ATV) Safety

Statement from Canada's Transport Minister John Baird:

 "Keeping Canadians safe is a top priority for this government. 
 That's why we are currently evaluating additional safety standards for  ATV's (specifically, the American National Standard for Four Wheel  All-Terrain Vehicles) and examining various options, including regulations.

 We were pleased to see the Canadian Off-Highway Vehicle Distributors  Council (COHV) ask its members to adopt this requirement.

 I would encourage all ATV users to take steps to protect themselves and  try to prevent incidents from happening in the first place."

Using an all-terrain vehicle properly is the first step toward having a safe and enjoyable ride. It is also important to be aware of the laws that apply when and where you use your ATV, before you ride. Finally, remember that riding responsibly is important to your safety, but also to the safety of other trails users.

ALWAYS:

  1.  Read your owner's manual and follow all of its instructions and warnings.
  2.  Follow your ATV's warning labels.
  3.  Get trained by a qualified ATV instructor and practice safe riding techniques at all times.
  4.  Inspect your ATV before riding, as advised in the owner's manual (for example, check your tire pressure).
  5.  Wear an approved helmet and protective riding gear.
  6.  Use the ATV within the limits of your driving abilities.
  7.  Use proper riding techniques to avoid losing control on hills, rough terrain and in turns.
  8.  Avoid paved surfaces – pavement may seriously affect handling and control.
  9.  Refuse to carry a passenger unless your ATV is designed for two riders. When you do carry a passenger:

o        be aware that your ATV will handle differently (cornering, braking, acceleration) compared to riding alone.
o        reduce speed and use extra caution.
o        make sure your passenger reads and understands the ATV's safety labels and uses an approved helmet and protective riding gear.
o        make sure your passenger can get a firm grip on the hand holds and can firmly place his or her feet on footrests while seated in the passenger seat.
o        tell your passenger to let you know when to slow down or stop if he or she is uncomfortable.
o        ask your passenger to get off and walk if conditions require.

NEVER:

  •  Drive an ATV without proper training.
  • Drive or be a passenger on an ATV while under the influence of drugs or alcohol.
  • Drive too fast for your skills or the driving conditions.
  • Drive on paved surfaces, as it may impair handling.
  • Carry a passenger, unless your ATV was built for two people.
  • Carry a passenger who can't firmly place his or her feet on footrests and get a firm grip on the hand holds.
  • Overload your ATV beyond its maximum weight capacity.
