This webinar will provide an overview of the risk factors associated with deaths and injuries when riders take ATVs and Recreational Off-Highway Vehicles (ROVs) on the road. These include youth as a particularly vulnerable riding population, and the higher risk of traumatic death when crashes occur on rural versus urban roads.

It will also include a discussion about the challenges and potential strategies related to raising public and stakeholder awareness of this widespread roadway safety issue.

Webinar Outcomes

Identify factors that contribute to ATV/ROV roadway deaths and injuries, including unique vehicle design features and common unsafe riding behaviors that are major contributors to roadway crashes.

Compare and contrast ATV/ROV crashes and crashes of other non-highway vehicles on the road, with a focus on farm vehicles.

Presenter

Dr. Gerene Denning - Research Scientist in Emergency Medicine at the University of Iowa

Dr. Denning’s primary area of research is injury prevention with a major focus on all-terrain vehicle (ATV) crashes and injuries. The overall program involves both public health and engineering research, including a one-of-a-kind ATV simulator. It also includes an educational school-based program for students 12 to 15 years of age called Safety Tips for ATV Riders or STARs. She serves on the board of the Iowa Injury Prevention Research Center and is a member of an Iowa statewide task force on ATV safety.

She is also part of a national coalition that advocates against recreational ATV riding on roads. More recently, her collaborative research focus has expanded to side-by-side crashes, including crashes of Utility Task Vehicles (UTVs) and Recreational Off-Highway Vehicles (ROVs) and their resulting deaths and injuries.
