Safer ATV riding is a top priority for the COHV and its member companies, Textron, BRP (CAN-AM), Canadian Kawasaki Motors Inc., Honda Group Inc., KTM, Polaris, Suzuki Canada Inc., Yamaha Motor Canada and their dealerships across Canada, which is why the COHV has introduced the “Ride Safe, Ride Smart” DVD.
The primary goal of the Ride Safe, Ride Smart DVD is to demonstrate the safe and responsible use of ATVs thereby assisting in reducing accidents and injuries that could result from improper ATV operation by the rider.
This nine-minute video is a rider-friendly look at how to get a proper start in ATV riding. It profiles two families; one who rides for recreation only, the other who uses their ATVs first for working on the farm, then as camping and recreational trail riding vehicles. Both sets of parents lead by example, emphasizing riding an ATV that is right for your age, wearing proper protective gear and respecting the environment. They also recommend taking an ATV RiderCourse to get the most from your ATV, enjoy the opportunity to meet other enthusiasts, and find out about the best places to ride.
