DNR issues ATV riding season primer (04/29/2009)
Too often, ATV riders don’t understand the safety rules and regulations said officials from the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources (DNR). The results can be tragic.

Seventeen people, ranging in age from 13-94, died riding all-terrain vehicles (ATV) in Minnesota last year. Another 280 were injured. “Riding ATVs can be an enjoyable form of outdoor recreation when done properly,” said Capt. Mike Hammer, DNR Enforcement Education

Program coordinator. “To reduce accident risk, riders should reduce speed, abide by current regulations, and take a safety training course.”

Anyone born after July 1, 1987, and who is 16 years of age or older who wants to operate an ATV on public lands in Minnesota, must successfully complete the independent study ATV Safety Training CD. Persons ages 12-15 must complete the ATV Safety Training CD and attend an ATV Safety Class before riding on public lands. Youth/Adult ATV Training CDs are available by calling 651-296-6157 or toll free 888-646-6367.”
