ATV Accident in Estes Park Colorado
This accident resulted in a broken hip for one passenger and a broken knee for another. Can you imagine being a father, taking your family on an ATV ride, and injuring them? I see it all the time and it's very sad.
It may not be the smartest thing in the world for me to promote the negative aspects of riding an ATV since I'm in the ATV rental business. However, I care more about you than I do the money. I absolutely hate seeing people get hurt. So, hopefully this blog will serve as yet another warning.
Without fail, every last customer of mine hears the exact same speech before they ride. I keep it real simple and my main focus is on speeding, jumping, doing donuts, and drifting around corners. Drifting seems to be the number one cause of the accidents I see, so I really hammer my point home. Problem is, most of what I say goes in one ear and out the other. As it did in this case. Here's a video on how to drift and why you shouldn't.
