Operating and riding on all-terrain vehicles (ATVs) is risky and should be done as safely as possible. Pennsylvania is among the states with the highest death rates due to ATVs, joining California, Texas, and West Virginia.
In recent years, there have been more than 700 ATV-related deaths and nearly 151,000 ATV-related injuries each year. More than a quarter of all deaths — 28 percent — occur in children and teenagers 16 and younger, and 12 percent in children younger than 12. More than a quarter of all injuries — 27 percent — occur in children 16 and younger. Injuries include severe brain trauma, facial trauma, broken bones, and spine trauma. These injuries are painful and may result a lifetime of disability and/or physical rehabilitation or death.
