Reporting ATV Incidents
An all-terrain vehicle, utility terrain vehicle or off-highway motorcycle crash incident is any incident (regardless of the number of vehicles involved) that results in a fatality or an injury that requires medical treatment by a physician.
Wisconsin law requires every operator involved in a crash incident to report the incident without delay to law enforcement officials. In addition, within 10 days of the incident, the operator must submit a written report on Form 4100-174 [PDF] to the DNR.
