When people think of driving cars, people usually imagine cars and vans travelling on highways and city streets. Others think of race cars trying to overtake each other a high speeds. However, there are others who think of driving where not every car can go: off the road.

Off-road driving is considered an extreme outdoor activity, requiring excellent driving skills and a lot of guts. Common off-road driving sited include sand dunes, dirt trails, rocky slopes, and steep mountain paths. Instead of sedans and station wagons, off road drivers use special vehicles designed to withstand abuse from driving on irregular terrain. Most off-road vehicles in mind also have extra features to enhance both power and endurance.

Unlike normal tires, an off-road vehicle has larger tires with deep, open treads to provide extra traction when driving on mud, sand, and snow. Suspension systems are more flexible to enhance stability and provide a more comfortable driving experience. Because of these features, off-road vehicles look taller compared to other types of vehicles. Greater vertical clearance also provides a bonus: since the chassis is elevated, it won’t get damaged by protruding rocks when clearing rocky surfaces. An off-road vehicle may also have a reinforced body and a roll cage to protect the driver in case it tips over; a likely possibility in this type of hobby.

Off-road driving is a popular sport in Calgary since the city is just a short ride away from ideal driving trails in the Rocky Mountains. This is why Hummer and Jeep Calgary owners got most of their vehicles from local dealerships. Of course, these vehicles are not exclusive to off-road drivers. A lot of people use off-road vehicles for other purposes. Some casual drivers prefer an off-road vehicles elevated chassis and improved suspension systems over those of sedans and family vans.

Although off-road driving is a recreational activity, it doesn’t mean driving rules don’t apply to Jeep and Hummer Calgary owners. For example, basic traffic rules still apply to off-road vehicles when they’re on regular roads. Off the road, these vehicles may be restricted from protected areas, and damaging the landscape incurs penalties and fees.

Nevertheless, off-road driving is a good activity for thrill seekers, adventurers and even those who just want to put their driving skills to the test. If you want to try off-road driving but you don’t have a set of wheels yet, you can go to Jeep Calgary dealers and get one. You can also go online and check websites like to About.com for more information about off-road driving.
