  1. These off road units can be very dangerous as well as snowmobiles (maybe more so) extreme care should be taken when riding either, most are going too fast for the conditions and most of the time alcohol is involved.
    The last thing you need to be is impaired before you ride one of these, it can mean the difference between returning home to your family at the end of the day or not.
    You need to use common sense and your best judgement when riding, you should never drink and drink drive any motorized vehicle even on your own property.
