Jan 02, 2006 — The popularity of 4-wheeled all-terrain vehicles continues to grow. Nationwide sales in 2005 were expected to top nine hundred thousand machines. Here in the north country, ATV riding has surged in popularity, despite a shortage of safe, legal riding trails. A Federal agency now says 4-wheeler crashes are causing too many deaths and serious injuries, especially among children. Ten kids die every month in America while riding adult-sized ATVs. The Consumer Product Safety Commission is considering new rules designed to keep kids from riding full-powered machines. Leading consumer advocates and health groups hope to see an outright ban on the sale of adult ATVs for use by children. But as Brian Mann reports, the industry says that kind of prohibition would be impossible to enforce.
