The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) is urging all ATV riders to stay safe in an effort to curb the annual rising trend in deaths and injuries seen each summer.
Data collected for 2004 to 2006, ATV-related fatalities of children 16 years old and younger rose by approximately 65 percent from March to April. Over the same period of time, adult deaths rose by 85 percent.
