Snowmobiling is one of the most popular recreational activities in the region throughout the long winter months. Nothing quite disrupts the doldrums of the cold winter season like a high-speed expedition through nature. This much loved activity provides a burst of energy to countless Yarmouth residents and visitors to the region each year.

Unfortunately, riding a snowmobile can be extremely dangerous. As a matter of fact, instances of fatal snowmobile accidents are on the rise. Riding a snowmobile requires experience, preparation, caution, and consideration for the safety of others. When the operators of off-highway vehicles ride their snowmobiles in negligent, unsafe manners, other community members can lose their lives or sustain numerous injuries of varying degrees of severity. Injuries resulting from snowmobile accidents frequently include:

  • Broken or fractured bones
  • Whiplash and other soft tissue injuries
  • Concussions
  • Traumatic brain injuries 
  • Sprains and strains
  • Musculoskeletal injuries
  • Internal bleeding
  • Organ damage
  • Fractured ribs
  • Neck and back injuries
  • Spinal cord injuries
  • Paralysis 
  • Traumatic amputations
  • And more

In accordance with the province’s Off-Highway Vehicle Act, anyone who operates a snowmobile is required to do so with a reasonable degree of caution. They are required by law to comply with the rules governing the use of their dangerous vehicles. If a snowmobile rider violates these rules and causes an injurious collision with another vehicle, they could be considered negligent. Common examples of negligence that often results in injurious snowmobile accidents include:

  • Driving under the influence of alcohol and/or drugs
  • Reckless driving 
  • Excessive speeding 
  • Distracted driving 
  • Failing to signal
  • Night riding with improper lighting 
  • And more
