Ride Safe!!!!

Reporting Accidents:

If you are involved in an accident that results in the injury or death of any person, or property damages to the estimated amount of $100 or more, you must report the matter in writing within seven days to the Department of Conservation and Natural Resources, Bureau of Forestry, PO Box 8552, Harrisburg, PA 17105. It is a violation of the Snowmobile/ATV Law not to report an accident.

If involved in an accident, you must stop and give your name and address, the name and address of the owner of the vehicle and its registration number to the other person(s) involved in the accident or to a police officer.

Accident forms are available upon request from the Snowmobile/ATV Section, Bureau of Forestry, Bureau of State Parks and State Police stations.

You can be held liable for injuries or death or damage to property resulting from the negligent use of your vehicle
.

 

Where to get training:

Inexperienced riders are much more likely to be involved in serious accidents. Always read your vehicle's owner's manual and all warning labels. DCNR oversees a training and safety program for ATV riding. It is recommended that all new users of ATVs take an approved safety course before riding their vehicles. Those successfully completing an approved course will be provided a safety certificate.

DCNR authorizes the training of safety instructors. For more information on a safety instructor near you, call DCNR's Bureau of Forestry at (717) 783-7941.

DCNR has approved the safety course offered by the ATV Safety Institute (ASI), a nonprofit division of the Specialty Vehicle Institute of America (SVIA) formed in 1988 to implement an expanded national program of ATV safety education and awareness. ASI's primary goal is to promote the safe and responsible use of ATVs, thereby reducing accidents and injuries that may result from improper ATV operation by the rider. For more information call the ATV Safety Institute at 1-800-887-2887.

YOUTH SAFETY & TRAINING:   Each year, hundreds of youth are involved in ATV accidents, some resulting in death.

Youth Safety:

While riding these vehicles is fun, it also can be very dangerous. Because of a child's leg and arm length, hand size, and strength, it is often difficult for children to properly control an adult-sized vehicle. Children driving ATVs should always be under the direct supervision of a responsible adult.

No child under the age of 10 is allowed to operate an ATV on public lands.

 

Keep in mind:

  • Children often emulate parental behavior; set good examples.
  • Children often underestimate the danger and risk because of inexperience.
  • Children often overestimate their skill level.
  • It is mandatory that all youth ages 10-15 take an approved ATV training course if they are planning to use their vehicle off of their parent's or guardian's property.

Youth Training:   For information on youth training, call DCNR's Bureau of Forestry at (717) 783-7941, or the ATV Safety Institute at 1-800-887-2887
