ATV Safety Practices Up For Discussion
The safety practice they are closely focused on, is that ATV riders make sure to always wear a helmet. About twelve months ago, an active on farm compliance campaign was launched to work toward safety on quads.
This policy looks at how there is no quick fix to reductions in accidents and injuries that come from irresponsible rider practices, such as not wearing a helmet. Hellyar says the report is based on a systematic approaching that identifies the problem, measures it, implements a solution and monitors progress.
The MIA group will continue to work toward a solution that makes ATVs safer. Hellyar says the report will be something to look forward to next year, in which they hope to implement change.
