ATV Seat Belts?

ATV opponents ask federal safety agency to require ATV seatbelts and rollbars

The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission asked the public to comment on ATV safety following its ATV Safety Summit held Oct. 11-12 in Bethesda, Md., and opponents of ATVs responded in force.

Most of the more than 40 comments received by the federal agency were from people and organizations demanding that children be banned from operating ATVs and drastic measures be taken to make ATVs safer.

What kind of measures?

They want mandatory roll cages, speed limiters, inter-lock systems so that an ATV can't be started if a person had consumed alcohol and a ban on aftermarket accessories such as rear rack bags.

They also want ATVs to have smaller seats.

If they have time for all this then there are to many employees. So we need to just get rid of the majority or all of them. Won't be long before they just put us in rubber bubbles. Rolling on floor laughing Rolling on floor laughing
They have gone way overboard on trying to protect us from ourselves, when in reality we need to be protected from them!!!  Smiley
I don't want to or need to live in a rubber bubble.

Seat belts on ATV's. Really? Have these people ever been on one or even seen one? That has to be the stupidest idea I've ever heard. That would make them more dangerous. How can you jump off if you are strapped down?

Why can't they just be honest. They don't like ATV's or people having fun, and want them banned.

I'm sure they have some great ideas for motorcycles too.

Like was just said...Stop trying to save me from myself. I'll take care of myself thanks.
