Hunting season may be a family tradition and a great time to bond with your family; however, unexpected accidents can occur and many times it’s because of unsafe ATV riding.

Using ATV Safety by Riding Solo

This hunting season, you might consider bringing only 1 or 2 ATVs for your 4-5 person family in order to save some money or space but understand that riding an ATV with another person comes with high risks of serious injuries.

First of all, it’s unsafe to have multiple riders on a single ATV because it restricts control of the driver.

Second, children under the age of 16 aren’t allowed on standard size ATVs. For children instead, there are ATVs specifically made designed with an engine size up to 90 cubic centimeters that weigh less for a smaller novice’s control ability.
