All Terrain Vehicles can be used for many purposes, including search and rescue expeditions and recreation. Sadly, every year across the country, ATV accidents impact families, including children.
A typical ATV can weigh more than 750 pounds and can move at speeds as fast as 75 miles per hour. It is important that both adults and children know how to ride these machines responsibly.
You should only operate an ATV that is appropriate for your size and age. Industry standards recommend the following:
- 6-11 years old – 50-70cc
- 12-16 years old – 70cc – 90cc
- 16 years and older – 90cc
