The International Snowmobile Manufacturers Association (ISMA) has released a 13-chapter video series on YouTube about snowmobiling and safety. The new Safe Riders! video series covers snowmobile safety and lifestyle issues. The chapters were created to support snowmobile safety instruction and information.

SnoRiders is happy to help the ISMA distribute this information far and wide. We are featuring a chapter each week over a 13-week period in an effort to further educate and inform our readers and, in this case, viewers.

Safe Riders! Chapter 3: Snowmobile Impaired & Challenging Riding

Just like impaired driving in an automobile decreases your reaction time and judgement, driving a snowmobile while impaired increases your risk of an accident. A zero tolerance rule is ideal for everyone who rides. Other danger factors include excessive speed, night riding, avalanche risks and riding on ice. Respect posted trail speed limits, ride sober, ride smart and have fun.
