Health Tip: ATV Safety

(HealthDay News) -- All-terrain vehicles (ATVS) are involved in an estimated 650 deaths and 100,000 accidents each year, says the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC).

To reduce your risk of injury, the CPSC suggests:

  • Do not drive ATVs on paved roads.
  • Do not drive ATVs with a passenger or ride as one.
  • Always wear a helmet and other protective gear.
  • Take a hands-on safety training course.

The CPSC also warns that children under 16 should never drive or ride an adult ATV.
