Off-Highway Vehicle Rider Etiquette

ATV Safety.jpg

Be Safe. Be Responsible. Be Respectful. Be Courteous, Alberta Off-Highway Vehicle Association (http://www.aohva.com)

While the reputation of the tens of thousands of responsible OHV riders may at times be tainted by the reckless actions of a few, the reality is that OHV users love and care for the natural landscape.

AOHVA is as concerned as anyone about improper OHV use when it comes to the environment and peoples’ safety. To promote safe, responsible and respectful off-highway vehicle use, the AOHVA and member clubs will be actively engaging Albertans as they head out into the back country in the coming weeks; greeting Albertans and providing them with important information to help ensure an enjoyable experience for all trail users.

OHV riders are reminded to:
- Be Safe: All riders must wear a helmet (it’s the law); OHV operators under the age of 14 must be supervised by a parent; one headlamp, one rear lamp, approved muffler with spark arrester.
- Be Responsible: Have your valid insurance, registration, license plate; know where camping and riding is allowed; be aware of trail regulations and advisories.
- Be Respectful: Ride on approved trails only; wheels out of the water, away from shorelines, keep away from wet land; pack it in take it out – remove all garbage.
- Be Courteous: Use courtesy when you meet others on the trail; pull over, remove helmets and give right of way to horseback riders; shut off the engine when you are near horses.
