Mississippi Traffic Collisions
Traffic accidents involving off-road vehicles like ATVs have a mortality rate that is 50% higher than wrecks that involve dirt bikes. The more people on the roadway at any given time, the more likely an auto accident can become. A driver who chooses to use drugs or alcohol, who is distracted or fatigued, is at a greater risk of causing a severe accident than a sober, alert, and awake driver. Those who drive ATVs are at a higher risk of sustaining severe injuries if they become involved in a crash due to having virtually no protection.
