Snowmobile incidents in Canada

Such a needless loss of life. Families must be devastated. The drivers who survive must feel awful, should quit drinking.

All around, stick to OFSC trails, follow simple guidelines, get some OFSC trail training. If you know someone is driving without a licence, they should be reported.

The Petersens (south of Ottawa) lost two family members in one year. Utter stupidity. Petersens Turf Farm owners, work in summer, claim unemployment all winter, drink, party all day and drive expensive sleds. Now two dead, you think the second would have learned from the first? No! Sleds more powerful than their brains.
