OPP step up ATV training for quicker response and enforcement - Timmins Times - Ontario, CA

"The popularity of all-terrain vehicles (ATVs) is beginning to show up in ways that many riders don't expect. More and more injuries, and deaths, are occurring as more Northerners use the popular machines, not just to travel in remote areas, but also at their camps, cottages and in rural areas of Timmins.

It has prompted the Ontario Provincial Police to respond. Not only are police issuing more public awareness safety messages, but also they're also in the process of ensuring more of their officers can respond to off-road incidents involving ATVs."

It would also be wise to put money into training and a tax recapture to rehabilitate riding areas, as well as building specific riding areas in communities where riders can ride.
