What can cause a Texas ATW accident?

1) Driving while impaired from drugs or alcohol. ATVs, like other vehicles should not be driven when under the influence of drugs or alcohol. A drunk ATW driver can cause the death or serious injury to the passenger

2) Driving without the right training. 

3) Bad riding conditions. It rains. Bad weather occurs. And bad trails are often the result of negligence. Sometimes the ATV rider is hurt because of bad conditions on an ATV trail. 

4) Carrying too many passengers. Many ATVs are not made to carry passengers; they are made for only one rider.
