There's Much "Auch" to This Silly ATV Crash

It's not the first time when I speak about how only few people seem to be able to understand that ATVs, despite having four wheels and not requiring a trained sense of balance to keep it straight, ARE stil dangerous.

This translates in the various types of fail we get to see posted on video social platforms. Riders operating ATVs while being tipsy, not wearing a helmet, let alone other types of protective gear and, my personal favorite, riding way beyond one's real skills.

In fact, this seems to be the main cause of ATV crashes and a huge number of riders are caught unaware by the way the vehicle reacts when they ride on rough ground with a heavy hand and no clue to what they should do.

And of course, the passengers are just as clueless

It's still puzzling to see people getting on such machines as passengers for these clueless riders. Obviously, they aren't wearing any protection, either, you guessed it. Riders who don't exactly know what they are doing or what they should be doing in certain scenarios, carrying equally "absent" passengers and riding the "just watch this" way is a sure recipe for a solid fail.

I'll leave you estimating how much time will pass until the road rash and other bruises heal in this case. Luckily, the passenger didn't hit the asphalt with his head...
