SALT LAKE - To increase awareness of off-highway vehicle (OHV) safety, Benjamin Henderson, owner of Hilltop Cycles Sales and Service in Murray, is donating money to Utah State Parks Off-Highway Vehicle Education Program. Henderson will pay OHV Education class registration fees for any youth, eight to 15, who receives or purchases an OHV from Hilltop Cycles. "It is encouraging to see dealers and state government working together in an effort to keep kids safe," said Eric Stucki, off-highway vehicle education coordinator for Utah State Parks. During the four-hour class, students are taught laws, rules, and safe riding techniques. The course includes personal instruction, machine operation and basic function, a skills test, and written exam. A parent is required to attend the class with their child. Under Utah law, no one under eight years of age is allowed to operate any OHV on public lands, roads, or trails in Utah. Resident operators eight though 15 years of age may operate an OHV, provided they possess an Education Certificate issued by Utah State Parks and Recreation. Resident operators 16 years of age or older may operate an OHV if they possess either a valid driver's license or an OHV Education Certificate. For information, please call 1-800-OHV-RIDE or visit www.stateparks.utah.gov
