Most ATVs are not designed to carry passengers. A passenger can interfere with the operator’s ability to shift his or her weight properly during maneuvers, which can cause a loss of control. If your ATV is designed for more than one person, be sure your passenger(s):
- Stays seated to keep the vehicle’s center of gravity as low as possible.
- Keeps his or her feet on the footrests and does not extend his or her hands beyond the edge of the ATV.
- Dismounts before you cross a road or difficult obstacle and walks across.
