OHV Helmet Use Required

 

In an effort to enhance off-highway vehicle (OHV) safety, the Government of Alberta has recently amended the Traffic Safety Act to include a new OHV Helmet Law. This means that effective May 15, 2017, helmets will be mandatory for those riding off-highway vehicles (OHVs) on public land. OHVs include any motorized vehicle built for cross-country travel on land, ice, and snow. Common types of OHV are all-terrain vehicles (ATVs), snowmobiles, dirt bikes, utility terrain vehicles, and side-by-sides.
