Watch this quick refresher about ATV safety, from our friends at Polaris

Have fun, ride safe and respect the outdoors.

Riding an all-terrain vehicle, like one of the Polaris ATVs found at select BSA council camps, is really as simple as following those three steps.

But what about those of us who crave a little more guidance before hopping aboard one of these fun and functional machines?

Polaris and the BSA have us covered with this brief safety video.

Watch for:

  • Essential gear for ATV safety
  • A reminder to never ride on paved roads except in specific circumstances
  • Guidelines on transporting passengers on an ATV
  • Advice on trails, speed and supervision

Consider screening the video at a troop or crew meeting, unit committee meeting, adult leader training or summer camp staff training. It’s a quick, effective refresher.
