Snowmobiling safety tips after deadly weekend

A Kewaunee County snowmobiling expert has tips for staying safe on your snowmobile this winter. This comes after five different people in Wisconsin died over the weekend, all in separate snowmobiling accidents. The incidents are believed to have been caused by excessive speed or alcohol. Dean Simonar, the VP of Sales at Simonar Sports in Luxemburg, says there is a culture of drinking and snowmobiling that needs to change in Wisconsin.

 

 

Anyone born after 1989 must have a snowmobile safety certificate to obtain a license to drive one. Simonar says even if you were born before that, you should take safety classes. He added that just being courteous on the trails can make snowmobiling safer, just like driving a car.
