Share post:

Indianapolis, IN – As temperatures rise, off-road vehicle (ORV) enthusiasts are gearing up for adventure. The Indiana Department of Natural Resources (DNR) is urging riders to prioritize safety. Indiana Conservation Officers stress the importance of responsible ORV operation and adherence to state regulations to ensure a safe riding season.

Key safety measures include wearing DOT-compliant helmets for all riders under 18, avoiding operation under the influence of substances, and adhering to manufacturer guidelines for rider age and capacity. 

Additional safety gear such as goggles, long sleeves, pants, and over-the-ankle boots are highly recommended. For side-by-side ORVs, the use of seat belts is mandated along with other safety equipment. The DNR emphasizes that children under 14 must always be supervised by an adult while riding.
