ATVs – also known as all terrain vehicles, four-wheelers or “quads” — are becoming more and more popular among adults and teen, both for fun and to haul heavy objects, especially in off road situations. Children enjoy going for rides on four-wheelers with their parents as well. But, even when properly operated, all terrain vehicles can still result in accidents involving serious injuries. The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission estimated in 2010 that there were over 100,000 all terrain vehicle-related injuries requiring a visit to the emergency room, and a quarter of those involved kids under 16 years of age. This is why it is so important to know the laws involving ATVs and to follow important ATV safety tips.
