New Law Requires Kids to Wear Helmet on ATV July 1st

June 30, 2017

Kid_ATV helmetBeginning this Saturday, July 1st, a new law will be in effect that requires all children under the age of 18 to wear a helmet when they are on or in an off-road vehicle.

The law was passed to protect Indiana’s youth from preventable brain injuries, serious bodily injuries or fatalities caused while operating or riding on vehicles capable of cross-country travel through highly visible and dynamic educational campaigns and effective law enforcement.

The law is that individuals under age 18 operating or riding on an off-road vehicle wear a DOT-approved helmet.

The new law applies to both public and private lands. However, it does not include golf carts.
