In light of the recent snowmobile collision, DRP would like to take this opportunity to remind snowmobilers to exercise caution and be prepared while out enjoying the winter weather.
Here are a few tips to keep you safe this season:
*If you are a beginner, make sure you know how to operate your machine safely before heading out
*Obey speed limits and road/trail signs and lower your speed when travelling at night
*Check local weather conditions before leaving for your destination and be prepared for the conditions
*Bring a cellphone and emergency kit with you in case of a break-down
*It is against the law to drive a snowmobile while impaired by alcohol or drugs
*Anyone who drives or rides on a snowmobile must wear a helmet that meets the standards approved for motorcycle helmets
*Know where to ride
