Making sure you prioritize ATV/UTV safety

As ATV/UTV use and ordinances in Door and Kewaunee have become more prevalent, especially in the summer months, you are reminded to think smart before hopping on for a ride. The Department of Natural Resources reports that twenty people have died in ATV/UTV crashes this year in Wisconsin and that the majority of victims were not wearing helmets. The DNR’s off-highway vehicle administrator Lt. Martin R. Stone says it’s important to monitor your speed and use caution on rough terrain as some Wisconsin terrain is too steep for ATVs and UTVs. You’re encouraged to take a safety course on operating ATV/UTVs which can even be done online. Other tips are included below.


  • Never consume alcohol or drugs before or during your ride 
  • Wear a seat belt and a Department of Transportation approved helmet
  • Wear other protective gear like eye protection, gloves, long pants, and long sleeves
  • Review ATV/UTV laws
