The DNR is urging snowmobilers to slow down and ride sober this and every snowmobile season.
Two snowmobile fatalities have been reported so far in 2022, following another 13 in 2021, with alcohol, excess speed, driver inexperience and operator error as the leading causes.
DNR conservation wardens and local law enforcement partners will be on patrol across the state during the upcoming Think Smart Before You Start enforcement campaign this weekend.
During last year’s effort, authorities made contact with more than 1,500 snowmobilers, issuing nearly 50 citations and over 350 warnings.
Be in the know and review Wisconsin’s snowmobile safety rules and regulations before heading out.
