  3. 3. Before you start your next 4x4 adventure, brush up on off-roading rules in Utah. ● Clearly display a current OHV registration sticker. If you’re not local, you’re likely required to purchase a non-resident OHV permit for any off-roading vehicle you bring to Utah. ● 8 years old and younger may not drive OHV on public roads, land, or trails in the state of Utah. ● Riders ages 8-15 are required to have an Education Certificate either recognized by, or issued by the Utah State Parks. ● Drivers 16+ may operate OHVs with an OHV Education Certificate or a driver’s license. ● Always drive sober, maintain control of your vehicle, and stay on the trail. ● Most National Parks do NOT allow off-road vehicles to operate within their limits. 3

  5. 5. Keep these key Utah off roading safety tips in mind. ● Wear your seatbelt, always. ● Always let someone know where you’re going and when they can expect you to return. ● Always bring extra gear, supplies, and tools - just in case. Bring the necessary gear to see you through the night and to handle medical emergencies that may occur. ● Know the lowest points of your undercarriage to prevent damaging them while off-roading. ● Always go in pairs (or more). If you find yourself in a pinch, you’ll be glad you had another 4x4 to help you out. ● Practice and study your approach and departure angles. Also, know your breakover angle and avoid damaging your 4x4. ● Tie down loose items in the car. Bumpy terrain will send items flying. 5 More On The Next Page!
  6. 6. Keep these key Utah off roading safety tips in mind. ● If you can’t see what’s ahead of you, hop out of the vehicle and check it out on foot. ● A rule of thumb for speed “Drive as slow as possible and as fast as necessary.” ● Avoid breaking your thumb by never wrapping them around the steering wheel. ● Travel up and down hills straight on. Approaching or descending an incline at an angle puts your vehicle is more danger of tipping over. ● No one should be putting their arms, legs, or heads out the windows. ● Don’t hold onto the roll bar! Your natural instinct may tell you to grab hold. But if you roll over, you’re sure to break fingers and hands. ● Do not attempt to turn vehicles by hand. Use winch systems and other proper techniques to correct overturned vehicles. Be sure to check that all winch system parts are in working order before using. A failure in gear or rigging can be lethal to you and bystanders. 6
