Throughout Atlantic Canada, individuals use four-wheelers and all-terrain vehicles (ATVs) as means of transportation. There are often specific routes and trails that are designated for ATVs. At intersections, motorists should yield to others who share the road. If a motorist fails to yield, it can result in serious accidents.
Driving Safety Tips
- Travel at safe speeds, at all times. Keep in mind that unfamiliar or rugged terrain could contain hazards.
- Avoid the use of alcohol or other drugs before or during the operation of a snowmobile.
- Wear well-insulated protective clothing, including goggles, waterproof snowmobile suits, gloves and boots.
- Carry an emergency kit. This kit could contain flares, a blanket, extra clothing, a first aid kit, a small shovel, a flashlight, roadmaps, a whistle, an extra key, a cell phone, etc.
- Travel in groups of two or more and only on designated, marked trails away from roads, waterways, railroads and pedestrian traffic.
- Check the weather forecast before going out. Avoid snowmobiling on ice if uncertain about its thickness or condition.
