ATV safety

Riding an all-terrain vehicle (ATV) is a fun way to explore and enjoy the great outdoors. It can also provide health benefits, including getting exercise, relieving stress, and improving mood through the release of adrenaline and endorphins. While these are great reasons to hop on an ATV and go, it’s critical to make sure you do so safely.

According to a Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) report released in February:

  • CPSC staff received reports of 15,250 ATV-related fatalities between 1982 and 2017. Children younger than 16 account for 3,315 of these deaths. Death counts for 2015 – 2017 are expected to increase, as reporting for these years is ongoing.
  • In 2017, there were an estimated 93,800 ATV-related, emergency department-treated injuries in the United States. An estimated 26 percent of these involved children younger than 16 years of age.

To help keep yourself or a family member from becoming a statistic, check out these excellent resources from the ATV Safety Institute (ASI):
