A big part of safely operating All Terrain Vehicles comes down to knowing the facts that keep drivers safe.

Before you ride, get all of the facts here.
Welcome to the Miss Information pageant! In order to help the South Dakota Office of Highway Safety combat the half-truths (and downright untruths) about ATVs and ATV safety, we found a beauty queen to represent all of the misrepresented facts surrounding the popular recreational vehicles.
Remember: always ignore misinformation. ATVs may seem safe, but if they aren’t operated responsibly, they can be deadly. Be sure to play "That Ain't Right: An ATV Safety Fact Pickin' Activity" to get some real (and some not so real) ATV safety facts.
