Quebec is rolling out its annual all-terrain vehicle (ATV) safety awareness campaign, and this year the government has put a greater emphasis on educating the population about speeding, drugs, and alcohol.
“Our government would like to remind people of the expected behaviours to ensure a safer environment for ATV users,” said Transport Minister François Bonnardel. Quebec recently imposed strict regulations around ATVs, such as holding a valid driver’s license.
According to a press release, speeding, as well as driving under the influence, are the main causes of accidents and death in off-road vehicles (ORV) in the province. The campaign will be broadcast online, on the radio, in print media, and on billboards throughout the summer.
