We had a very successful round of Spring 2012 VEST courses. We held courses in Newfane, Rutland, Milton, and Hardwick. All of which had a great success rate! We are so proud of all of the students who participated. We would like to schedule some summer courses and perhaps some fall as well so please check back for updates.
VASA encourages and promotes safe ATV operation. It is important to carefully read and follow the instructions and warnings in the owner’s manual and on labels. ATVs handle differently from other vehicles such as motorcycles and cars. Proper instruction and practice are important.
ATVs can be hazardous to operate. For your safety, always wear a helmet, eye protection and protective clothing. Never carry passengers (unless your ATV was so designed) or engage in stunt riding. Avoid excessive speeds. Riding and alcohol or other drugs don’t mix. Be extra careful on difficult terrain. Respect the land owner, stay on the legal trail or seek written permission to use another's land.
