ATVs and other off-road vehicles are popular choices for fun and entertainment. However, it is important to keep in mind that an ATV must be operated safely in order to ensure that accidents do not occur. Excessive speed and inexperienced drivers are common causes of a crash involving an ATV and other non-traditional vehicles. Care must be taken to ensure that an ATV experience does not turn tragic.
