Brad Pitt and son Pax drive an ATV with little to no safety precautions.


TMZ caught Brad driving an all-terrain vehicle with son Pax in his lap. Neither were wearing helmets and no seat belts were used. According to the ATV Safety Institute, riding requires protection for head, eyes, hands and feet against occasional spills, flying debris, or contact with foliage. Obviously, Brad didn't mean to put his child in harm's way, but we all have to remember that accidents happen, especially on vehicles like these.

Before You Ride
The ATV Safety Institute's Golden Rules:

• Always wear a helmet and other protective gear.
• Never ride on public roads—another vehicle could hit you.
• Never ride under the influence of alcohol or other drugs.
• Never carry a passenger on a single-rider vehicle.
• Ride an ATV that's right for your age.
• Supervise riders younger than 16; ATVs are not toys.
• Ride only on designated trails and at a safe speed.
