Copied from Indiana DNR Facebook page.... ATV Helmet Law: Frequently asked questions Does the Helmet Law apply to Side by Sides and UTV’s? Yes, the law pertains to all vehicles that are designed for cross country travel. If I place a child in a car seat, does the helmet law still apply? Yes, the use of a car seat does not exclude a child, under age 18 from being required to wear a helmet when riding on an off-road vehicle. Does the helmet law apply to ATV’s being used around the farm? When used for “Farm purposes” the helmet law does not apply, however the law does apply when the vehicle is used for something other than “farming purposes” Does the helmet law apply to Golf Carts? Golf carts are excluded from this law and no helmet is required. Does my child need to wear a helmet when on a motorized mini-bike or dirt-bike? Yes, the law applies to all vehicles specifically designed for off-road travel, excluding golf-carts. Is a helmet required when my child is operating or riding on a Go-Cart? Yes, this law also applies to Go-Carts. Does the helmet law apply to battery operated toy machines? The law applies to any machine that is designed for cross country travel. It includes certain battery operated machines, but the common toy machines that are only capable of slow back yard travel are not considered off road vehicles and helmets are not required for them. Does this law only apply to public property or roadways? No, the helmet law applies on public and private property. Who is responsible if a violation is found by an officer? The operator of any vehicle is ultimately responsible for any violation, including the failure of the operator to wear a helmet. However, the new law also allows the adult that is responsible for the ATV to be cited for the offense. Are Jeeps, Trucks, Crawlers, Dunebuggies or similar vehicles included on this list? If a vehicle is unregistered through the BMV and used for the purpose of cross-country travel it is within the definition that requires a helmet for all occupants under the age of 18.

Owensville Police Dept. Halloween Safety Tips Parents: • Always escort your children when Trick-or-Treating. • Always carry a flashlight and wear reflective clothing. • Add reflective clothing to your children’s costumes. • Know who will be with your children. • Know the area where your children will Trick-or-Treat. • Stay in well lit areas. • Set specific times for your children to Trick-or-Treat. • Never let your children enter someone’s home. • Inspect all treats before allowing children to eat. • Make sure your children know their parents’ names, address, and phone number in case they get lost. Trick-or-Treaters: • Never Trick-or-Treat alone. • Stay in well lit areas. • Walk on the sidewalk, not in the street. • WATCH out for cars! ALWAYS look both ways when crossing a street. • DO NOT run out into the street. • Only approach houses with a porch light on. • Carry flashlights. • Wear reflective clothing on your costume. • DO NOT wear too much make-up or face paint that would prevent clear vision. • Avoid masks that prevent clear vision. • Vandalism is never cool! Throwing eggs at cars and houses is not cool. Someone has to clean it up and it could be you, if you get caught. You can also be arrested and punished as a juvenile. So, don't think that it's fun only if you can get away with it. It's never the right thing to do! Think about how you would feel if someone did that to your house and how bad it would make you feel. Motorists: • Drive carefully and slowly. Drive even slower than normal. • Always be on the lookout for children who may be in the street or run out into the street. • Avoid distractions (i.e. phone, radio) for better concentration. • NEVER drink and drive. • REMEMBER! This is an exciting time for kids. They will forget about cars still on the road.
