As many area residents probably know, Pennsylvania has a large amount of all-terrain vehicle (ATV) users.  Exploring the natural beauty of central Pennsylvania by ATV, motorbike, or snowmobile is a common activity among our area's families.  However, the converse side to this activity is the potential for serious injury or death.  According to a recent report, Pennsylvania ranks among the top five states for the highest numbers of ATV-related deaths.


Want to know how to be safe in Pennsylvania?  Take a look at these few websites:

The ATV Safety Institute:
http://www.atvsafety.org/
The ATV Safety Institute provides resources and training to become a safe and responsible ATV rider.  The site also discusses proper riding gear and how to respect the outdoors when you are out riding.  


PA Places To Ride:
http://www.dcnr.state.pa.us/forestry/recreation/atv/atvplacestoride/
This site is a state-run website that tells Pennsylvania riders where and when it is safe to ride your all-terrain vehicle outdoors.  It also includes a map of the state's trail systems!

 

As noted above, ATVs, dirt bikes, and other off-road vehicles (such as snowmobiles) are a leading cause of serious injury among Pennsylvanians, especially among our state's youth.   Attorney Doug Stoehr of Altoona, PA handles cases involving injury as a result of accidents involving off-road vehicles.  For more information about Attorney Doug Stoehr and his Blair county area practice, please call his law firm at 814-946-4100.
