All-Terrain Vehicles (ATVs) are rapidly becoming one of the most popular recreational vehicles on the market. As their name implies, ATVs are high-powered, high-speed vehicles intended for use in off-road areas. While the structural designs of individual ATVs may vary, the most common and popular variation is similar to a motorcycle body mounted on four large wheels. With a rigid rear axle to promote skidding, ATVs are ideal for off-road adventuring – but not necessarily the safest way to do so.
The US government estimates that as many as 870 people died in ATV-related accidents in 2005, with another 136,000 injured to the point of needing emergency treatment. Why are ATVs so dangerous?
