The Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) recently reported that 15,744 ATV-related fatalities occurred between 1982 and 2018. This is a staggering statistic that shows the need for greater powersport safety awareness.
ATVs are incredibly popular recreational vehicles, but they can also be dangerous if used improperly or without the necessary safety precautions. The CPSC recommends that riders wear helmets, eye protection, and other protective gear when operating an ATV. Additionally, it’s important to make sure the ATV is in good working condition before riding it and to never ride on public roads or highways.
RideSafe is committed to promoting powersport safety and raising awareness of the risks associated with ATVs. We believe that everyone should have access to information about safe riding practices and the importance of wearing proper safety gear. We also encourage parents to talk to their children about ATV safety and ensure they understand the risks involved in operating an ATV.
We know the solution, and we must start talking about it, normalizing powersport safety conversations, and express that it is good to care for and look after one another. RideSafe is dedicated to helping spread this message so that fewer people are injured or killed in ATV-related accidents each year.
