Keep Your ATV Adventures Safe

Unique among motor sports, driving all-terrain vehicles in Idaho combines an exhilarating workout with a test of maneuvering skills and a hearty dose of adrenaline.

 

Fun as it is though, it can be a risky activity.

So, take a systematic approach to keeping things safe before, during and after your outings.

 

 

    Take a Course

    Formal hands-on training courses cover how to control ATVs in commonplace situations. The ATV Safety Institute typically offers its ATV RiderCourse free to anyone who buys a new qualifying machine from an institute member. Call 1-800-887-2887 or visit atvsafety.org for class information.


    Dress for Success


    A motorcycle or other motorized sports helmet, certified by the U.S. Department of Transportation, is a must. You’ll also want to suit up with over-the-ankle boots and long pants, a long-sleeved shirt, goggles and gloves.

  • Remember Insurance


    Riding on state-owned land? Many states require ATV insurance, which offers coverage options similar to what’s available for motorcycles – liability, comprehensive, collision, safety apparel replacement, roadside assistance and more.

    Don’t Share the Seat


    You’ll want to be free to shift your weight according to the terrain and the situation. Passengers make it difficult – and dangerous.

    Stay Off the Road


    ATVs simply aren't street-legal machines, at least not in most states. The solid rear axle with no differential means they can be hard to handle on pavement.

    No Underage Operators


    Children should never be allowed to drive or ride on an adult ATV. Someone under 16 on an adult ATV is twice as likely to sustain an injury as a child riding a youth ATV, according to ATVSafety.gov.

Don't Drink and Drive


This is when you get to unwind with a cold one, not before. You need sharp reaction time and judgment, so don’t ever drive ATVs under the influence of alcohol or drugs.

We here at Castle Rock Insurance want you to enjoy your ATV outings this summer, while staying safe. Just give us a ring if we can help you explore ATV insurance options!
