In Georgia and other States, adults and children enjoy riding ATVs (All Terrain Vehicles). ATV riding can be quite dangerous as well. It is important for adults and children riding ATVs to follow safety precautions by wearing helmets, knowing the terrain where the riding is taking place, and by traveling at a safe speed.
In Cleveland, Georgia, it was reported by the Atlanta Journal Constitution Newspaper website that a man died as a result of an ATV accident. It was reported that the man and the ATV went off a 25 foot embankment.
Just because a person is operating an ATV off the road does not make it safe. Of course, it is safer than riding an ATV on or near traffic. However, accidents can still happen on and off dirt roads and other off road areas.
