Snowmobile accidents kill three in last three weeks
In the past three weeks three women have been killed in separate snowmobile accidents. These incidents dramatically demonstrate how dangerous the sport can be. Just like with other motor driven vehicles there are rules and safety practices that snowmobile riders must obey. Snowmobile riders who Violate these rules and safety practices and cause serious injury or death may be responsible for the harm they cause. We urge everyone who rides snowmobiles to take the rules and safety precautions very seriously. We recommend the Snowmobilers Safe Rider website. Go there for comprehensive information about snowmobile safety.
