It’s no secret that ATVs and UTVs are dangerous. But what many don’t realize is just how deadly they can be. According to the Consumer Product Safety Commission, in 9 out of 10 ATV/UTV fatalities, the victim was not wearing a helmet —and in up to 95% of fatalities, the victim had not received safety certification.
At RideSafe, we believe that these numbers are unacceptable. We know that with proper safety training and gear, most of these accidents could be avoided. That’s why we’re dedicated to educating riders on the importance of safety when it comes to powersports vehicles.
We understand that taking safety precautions can seem like a hassle or an inconvenience, but it’s worth it for your own protection and peace of mind. Wearing a helmet and other protective gear is essential for keeping you safe while riding an ATV or UTV. Additionally, taking a certified safety course can help you learn how to safely operate your vehicle and become aware of potential hazards so you can avoid them.
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. At RideSafe, we’re committed to helping riders stay safe on their adventures by providing educational resources on ATV/UTV safety as well as certified courses taught by experienced professionals.
