Off-highway vehicles (OHVs) like ATVs and UTVs are fun recreational vehicles as well as useful work tools when jobs need to be completed in the bush. Because of their recreational status, we sometimes underestimate their potential for hazards. But their unique builds and specific operating requirements can easily make operators the victims of incidents if they are not aware of the dangers of operation.
