Off-road vehicles have been increasing in popularity during the past decade. As trails and recreation areas become more crowded, it’s more important than ever for people to operate these vehicles safely and responsibly.

OHVs on a trail

Today’s off-road vehicles are used for both work and play.

  • Work-related uses include farming, ranching, construction, oil production, land management, field maintenance, law enforcement, military applications, and rescue operations.
  • Recreational uses include trail riding; transporting items, such as hauling gear to a fishing spot, campsite, or hunting grounds; and hauling firewood from the backwoods to the homestead.
