Before heading out for an off-highway vehicle (OHV) ride, always let someone know where you are going and when you expect to return. This information helps search and rescue crews in the event of an emergency.
- Contact a responsible person who is not going on the ride, such as a close friend or relative, and provide them with your itinerary.
- Leave a telephone number for local rescue authorities who should be contacted if you are overdue.
- If you plan to extend your ride, be sure to let your contact person know to avoid unnecessary contact of rescue authorities.
Avoid off-highway vehicle accidents and injuries by looking ahead for hazards on the trail. As a rule of thumb, allow one yard for every mile per hour you are riding. Staying alert and focused helps riders select the best route, avoiding danger and allowing time to slow down if necessary.
