Email News Alerts

Gov. Mark Dayton has proclaimed June 8-15 as all-terrain vehicle (ATV) safety week in Minnesota.

More than 600,000 ATVs are used by Minnesotans for outdoor recreation and to support their daily livelihood. State law requires anyone born after July 1, 1987, to have a certificate showing they have taken safety training if they are 11 or older and want to ride on public land, trails, and frozen waters.


In the last 5 years, 83 Minnesotans have lost their lives in ATV accidents.
