Long Sault - Aug. 25, 2011 - Over the last few months a number of Off-Road Vehicles have been stopped and checked by police while on trails and roadways. Unfortunately, an increased number have had either no brakes or no rear brakes.

It is extremely dangerous to operate any vehicle with mechanical failures or malfunctions. The law requires that all brakes on Off-Road Vehicles be in proper working order.

As with all vehicles, regular maintenance and a pre-trip check is crucial to safe travel. If there is equipment issues, have a qualified mechanic check and repair the unit prior to using it.
