Brian Ross will have this as part of Nightline tonight.

It just seems to never be anything positive for our sport.

Maybe we all should stay in a padded room and never come out, that way we can be perfectly safe.

The one thing parent need to use is common sense with their kids. Some kids can not handle even the smallest of ATV's while a child the same size, can handle them fine.

Just something to think about!

Its wanting to ride wide open or climbing and jumping that gets the kids hurt or killed. They all want to act like dad or big brother or at least impress them!
No matter how skilled a child is, there are accidents and sooner or later their turn to be injured.
We know the kind of things we did at their age, yet, we allow them to ride on their own.
Sort of an attitude that "I survived it, so can they" But some don't.
I spoke of the boy about 9 to 12 years old that rides flat out past my house almost daily with no helmet on. We all know the risk he is taking of getting struck by a car, but he is apparently allowed to do it anyway. I did what I could. Now he wears a helmet. But its up to his parents to keep him off the roads. I know they wont do that because they dont believe the danger is real. If he is one of the children killed this year, and they are charged with child endangerment etc. they will still feel they were right and the law was wrong. But, someone should have kept him from getting into a situation that ended his life. I have seen it, I have picked up the pieces, I know its real.

If all the deaths and devastating injuries were to riders over 18, it would be bad enough for our sport. But, with so many youngsters seriously injured, eventually, they will come down on the sport with more rules and laws that affect even the parents who stricly oversee their kids riding along with the rest of us riders.
