All Terrain Vehicles (ATVs) are 3 and 4-wheel motorized vehicles used for off-road riding. ATVs are used for both fun and rescue as they provide quick and easy access in off-road areas. Unfortunately, every year, many people, including children, are severely injured in ATV accidents.
Children under the age of 16 are the most at risk for ATV accidents. Many states do not require a license or training, nor is there an age limit to operate an ATV. A typical adult-size ATV can weigh in excess of 750 and can travel as fast as 75 miles per hour.
You should only ride an ATV that is appropriate for your size and age. The ATV industry recommends the following:
6-11 years old – 50-70cc
12-16 years old – 70cc – 90cc
over 16 – 90cc
