As many OHV enthusiasts rely on trailers to get their OHVs to and from riding areas, NOHVCC is excited to participate in Trailer Safety Week starting June 5. Help NOHVCC support this important initiative by sharing the links and articles below in club newsletters, on social media, and websites.
Each year the National Association of Trailer Manufacturers (NATM) promotes this traffic safety effort which, “aims to close the gap of communication between trailer manufacturers, dealers and end-users of trailers to make towing safer and raise awareness of safe towing practices.” For more information about Trailer Safety Week and NATM click here.
The need for safe and responsible practices does not begin or end at the trailhead. Responsible OHV enthusiasts will protect themselves and others as well as their vehicles by engaging in safe trailering. The articles below were shared by Polaris and provide OHV-specific information about safe loading and towing – read them yourself to brush up and share them so others can be better prepared as we move into the riding season for much of the Country.
