Why do I need snowmobile driver training?
Because snowmobiles are relatively easy to operate, the hazards associated with them are often overlooked or minimized. Every year, snowmobile accidents cause an estimated 200 deaths and about 14,000 injuries. Excessive speed, operating while impaired, inexperienced drivers, and poor judgment are the leading causes of snowmobile accidents.
