RCMP Charge Parents for Unsupervised ATV Use Following Crash in September

RCMP in New-Wes-Valley have laid charges against the parents of four separate young people following a collision involving two all terrain vehicles in September.

Police say the crash between a dirt bike, driven by a young person who was not being supervised, and a side-by-side ATV with two adults on board, resulted in all three being taken to hospital for treatment of injuries.

Police say three other dirt bikes, each being operated by young people who were not supervised, were present at the time of the crash.

RCMP say the resulting investigation recently led to charges against four people, all parents of the four young drivers, under the Off-Road Vehicles Act.

The law requires people under the age of 16 to be supervised by adults—meaning they must be seen by the young driver at all times and be in a position to provide direction.
