Used correctly, off-road vehicles, or 4x4s, are very versatile vehicles with a wide variety of uses. The use with trailers make them even more flexible and effective tools for both business and recreation. But even the most experienced off-road drivers can find themselves in hazardous and potentially dangerous situations. Serious accidents can and do occur without proper training.
