OHV collisions occur on the trail. To help avoid a collision, keep an eye out for fast moving vehicles and always be cautious. Consider installing a whip to improve your vehicle’s visibility. Slow down when your line of sight is obstructed or when nearby others. Follow the right of way: Motorized vehicles yield to bikes, pedestrians, and horses. Bikes yield to pedestrians and horses. Pedestrians yield to horses. Yield to those passing from behind or traveling uphill.
