In our continued quest to provide safety information, we thought this article is of interest for owners of ATV vehicles.

Accidents can occur at any time, being prepared may avoid one.

ATV Safety and Regulations
Reported by: Kelli Carlisle
Thursday, Jul 10, 2008 @06:22pm CST

Not following the rules of ATV riding recently landed a Dawson Springs couple in jail on felony charges.

40-year old Derek Hammons and 24-year old Amanda Masoncup face felony charges of wanton endangerment

The couple allegedly allowed his 14-year old daughter to drive a four-wheeler with a five year old and two year old as passengers.

The five year old fell off the back and was badly injured.

Police arrested the couple--saying they violated several safety laws.

Officers are now sending a strong message to parents....

Make sure your kids are safe while riding

According to Kentucky law, all riders under 16 are required to wear head safety gear and ride ATVs appropriate for their age.

Some only allow drivers 16 and older, others 12 and up, there are even ATVs for kids as young as six.

No matter which one you let your child ride--and adult always has to supervise any rider under 16. And although a provision in 2006 required passengers to wear helmets, Carter says bikers should really ride alone.

The laws and stickers are nothing new, neither are the number of ATV accidents in the tri-state, but police hope if safety concerns don't change the way you ride, maybe the thought of going to jail will.
