Indianapolis, IN – Indiana’s Department of Natural Resources is steering the conversation toward off-road vehicle (ORV) safety. In a recent social media push, the department highlighted the importance of responsible ORV usage, emphasizing the dangers of operating these vehicles under the influence of alcohol or drugs.

According to the Indiana DNR, the campaign is part of a broader initiative to promote #ORVSafetyweek, an effort to reduce accidents through education and legal compliance. With a stark reminder that fun should not compromise safety, the Indiana DNR’s message is clear: ORVs are to be enjoyed soberly and securely.

The educational drive includes an online safety course provided by Offroad Ed, approved by the Indiana DNR, which covers all necessary safety aspects for operating ORVs. The course, which costs $34.95, is accessible via various devices and can be completed at the user’s own pace. The department’s partnership with Offroad Ed demonstrates a commitment to preventive measures, aiming to decrease the risk of ORV-related incidents across the state.
