During the 2009-10 snowmobiling season New York State had 14 deaths and 237 people injured from snowmobiling. Franklin County had one fatality and eight people injured. Unsafe speed was listed by far as the number one cause of snowmobile crashes. This is not necessarily speeding but operators who were riding too fast for weather and/or trail conditions. The statistics show that the most dangerous time was between noon and 6 p.m. and, not surprisingly, most of the crashes occurred on weekends.
