ATV Safety Institute Offers Free Training & Education During ATV Safety Week
- June 6-12th, 2016-

 

(Helena, MT) Montana State Parks (stateparks.mt.gov) and the Off-Highway Vehicle Program would like remind the public that ATV Safety Week is June 6-12th, 2016. During ATV Safety Week, the AVT Safety Institute offers free training and education classes.

 

ATV Safety Week is an annual safety awareness campaign sponsored by the ATV Safety Institute that aims to engage ATV enthusiasts of all ages in valuable safety training. Training focuses on proper operation of your machine, helmets and other protective gear and ways to minimize risks when riding. Free hands-on safety events will be offered at several locations throughout the country and various online training resources are highlighted as well at atvsafety.org.

 

The ATV Safety Institute offers a free age-appropriate course geared for children, teens or adults on their website. This interactive course focuses on rider safety, the Golden Rules of ATV riding, and offers the opportunity to take an exam and receive a certificate of completion. Montana State Parks also offers two online safety course options on our Off-Highway Vehicle webpage.

   

In 2015 there were 92 reported ATV crashes in Montana. Eleven of those resulted in fatalities (12%), and an additional 69 crashes (75%) resulted in injuries. Please wear your helmet and consider taking advantage of some form of ATV safety training this summer to help save the lives of you, your family and friends.

 

Visit Montana State Parks (stateparks.mt.gov) and enjoy camping, hiking, fishing, swimming, boating and more and discover some of the greatest natural and cultural treasures on earth.
