One Less Spark
All-Terrain Vehicles (ATVs) are fun to drive and take the user off-road along trails. As such, the vehicle is often in contact with vegetation.
Here are some tips to prevent fire starts:
- The heat from the exhaust systems of ATVs can sometimes cause wildfires, especially when idling near tall grass.
- ATVs with their spark arrestors removed can release sparks that start wildfires. Ensure your ATV has a spark arrestor inside the muffler to trap any escaping sparks.
- Make sure to carry fire suppression equipment, such as a fire extinguisher or a pail and shovel, to extinguish any fires that might occur.
