Snowmobile & ATV Accidents
Wisconsin, with its alternating seasons and diverse landscapes, provides residents and vacationers alike the opportunity to enjoy the outdoors with various recreational vehicles. Unfortunately, whether it’s exploring the abundance of trails on snowmobiles or ATVs, injuries from these types of vehicles are all too common.
Just as there are state and federal laws governing operators and passengers of motor vehicles, there are also laws governing the use of recreational vehicles. When these laws are neglected, accidents, injuries, and even fatalities can occur. To reduce your risk for an accident, be sure to follow the operating regulations specific to your vehicle. Since recreational vehicles are not equipped with the advance safety mechanisms of automobiles and trucks, familiarizing yourself with the proper use and handling of these vehicles is extremely important. Additional safety measures include wearing the right protective clothing and gear and choosing never to operate or ride under the influence of alcohol or drugs. For further information regarding operational requirements, obligations and education for snowmobiles and ATV’s, visit the Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources’ website, or follow this link: http://dnr.wi.gov/org/caer/cs/rec.htm.
