Many ATVs come with the following safety features.
- Brake Wear Indicator: Tells you when to replace the brakes.
- Safety Flag: Lets other riders know your location when your ATV is hidden behind a hill or other obstruction. This brightly colored flag (often fluorescent orange) attaches to the ATV’s whip antenna. Some states require a safety flag for dune riding.
Additional safety features may be available on small ATVs designed for children.
- Exhaust Port Restrictor: Limits engine power.
- Engine Stop Lanyard: Lets an adult walking behind the ATV turn off its engine by tugging the lanyard cord.
