Local dealers stress off-road vehicle safety

Remaining Ad Time Ad - 00:00

Local off road vehicle dealers are stressing safety.

They said as the weather warms up, more people will be out driving these types of vehicles.

Dealers at Outdoor Power Sports in Quincy said ATV’s and UTV’s are designed with safety in mind but it’s up to the driver to follow those safety rules.

They said always wear a seat belt or a helmet and only use the vehicles for their intended purpose.

“When somebody doesn’t have their seat belt on, if this machine was to go over, the first thing that happens to your body is it comes out and unfortunately that roll cage up there lands on people the wrong way when you’re not strapped into the machine so the seat belts are there for a reason,” said Dwight Hibbard with Outdoor Power Sports.

Hibbard also stressed to never drink and drive any off road vehicle.
