The Meeker County Sheriff's Office is training youth and adults in ATV safety. Currently in Minnesota, ATVs are outselling snowmobiles. This increases the importance of teaching proper riding techniques, skills, laws and regulations, as well as ethics when riding an ATV. After completing the class, students will have the knowledge to safely operate an ATV on state trails and private property. The deputies instruct students on what to do in case of emergencies and how to report ATV accidents. The course includes a home study portion, handwritten test, riding test, and a visit from a local Department of Natural Resources Officer.
