Causes for ATV & Off-Highway Vehicle Accidents
When you’re enjoying yourself aboard an ATV or another off-highway vehicle, like a snowmobile, dune buggy, or dirt bike, there are still regulations that you are expected to obey. Oftentimes, these regulations are set by the Colorado Parks and Wildlife organization and they apply to the areas that you are allowed to ride ATVs and off-highway vehicles. Some of these regulations include locations you’re allowed to run your off-highway vehicle, speed limits and following distances you must obey, and that you must operate your vehicle in a sound state of mind.
Unfortunately, there are many people that operate their ATVs or off-highway vehicles while under the influence of alcohol of other substances. There are also multiple causes for off-highway vehicle accidents, including the following:
- Following too closely
- Disobeying the speed limits
- Straying from designated paths
- Lack of control or understanding of their off-highway vehicle
- Failure to properly merge, resulting in an accident
