ATV Safety Urged 

ATV riding season is underway, and officials at the Minnesota DNR are reminding riders, especially younger riders, that safety must be a top priority. The DNR's Jon Paurus says last year in Minnesota, 242 people were injured, and 13 people died while riding ATVs. Paurus says that's why young riders must be supervised at all times, and operators under 18-year-old must wear an approved safety helmet, unless they're riding on private property. To find out more about ATV riding and safety regulations, or to sign up for a training course, you can visit the DNR's website.
