The state of Louisiana has instituted laws specifying that minors are required to pass UTV safety classes and must always be under adult supervision. A lot of adults, however, typically break the rules intended to make these vehicles safer for children to use. Many riders have endured serious or even fatal injuries when their UTV overturned on them. The most popular UTV accident injuries are spinal cord injuries and brain injuries.
