Russ Ehnes, Executive Director of the National Off-Highway Vehicle Conservation Council (NOHVCC), presented this at CPSC's ATV Safety Summit October 12, 2012. The National Off-Highway Vehicle Conservation Council (NOHVCC) presents a session about a program that is currently being developed to help individuals interested in participating in off-highway vehicle (OHV) activities, including ATV riding, for the first time get off on the right foot. The video-based program will help new riders make safe and responsible decisions when they become participants in OHV recreational activities. The videos will help them make decisions regarding the type and size of ATV that might be appropriate for them and family members, where they can get the proper safety training and why it is important to become trained, what types of safety gear are available and required to ride, where they can get information about legal and safe riding opportunities, and how they can become involved with organizations that promote safe and legal riding in their area.
