Thief River Falls Conservation Officer Jeremy Woinarowicz is reminding parents about rules concerning ATV operation.

Woinarowicz monitored ATV activity during the Moose Festival in Karlstad and says “parents are reminded that a DOT-approved helmet is required for all passengers under age 18 on any ATV when not on their own private property.” Enforcement action included no helmet on a juvenile ATV passenger, allowing illegal operation of an ATV by a juvenile, and ATV registration violations.
