ATV Protective Helmets – The Best Possible Way Of Protecting Yourself
With the rapid increase in the number of all terrain vehicles owned over the United States, ATV-related injuries and deaths have also increased. Wearing the appropriate ATV protective helmet has been made mandatory to protect riders. Also, riders of all terrain vehicles are allowed to venture on roads only after they have received sufficient training on the safe handling of ATVs to protect themselves, and wear protective helmets.
Riding ATVs without the sufficient protective helmet is a major cause of ATV related deaths. Whatever may be the reason, it is always better to use a protective helmet. If you do not wear protective helmets, your life may be greatly endangered.
Charles Fraser, a 32-year-old agricultural mechanic rode without a helmet, and was mortally injured while taking an all terrain vehicle for a test ride into the countryside, even though he knew proper ATV handling.
The employing company was severely penalized because it failed to ensure the safety and protection of the employee on duty. This incident caused a stir in the ATV industry. It was also a warning bell for those who considered protective helmets or other sorts of protection unnecessary for operating all terrain vehicles.
This tragic incident highlighted the kind of mishaps that can happen to un-trained and reckless ATV riders. Sometimes, an ATV helmet is not easily available. In such cases a normal motorcycle helmet meeting BS 6658 and BS 4110 standards is a recommended option. Helmets save lives, because they protect your brain from injury. Protective helmets can make the difference between a bumped head and brain damage. Protect yourself.
