What is the Problem?

In recent years, a growing number of All-Terrain Vehicles (ATVs) for kids have been advertised for children as young as 1 year old. Unfortunately, many of these youth ATVs lack mandatory safety features — most commonly, a maximum speed limit, posing a risk of high-speed crashes that can cause severe, life-threatening injuries.

EGL will also repair the parking brake, speed capability and spark arrestor.” They were sold nationwide from May 2020 through September 2020.

  • The handlebars pose a laceration hazards if a child’s head or body hits them in a crash
  • Parking brake does not prevent movement at the minimum required steepness

They were sold at Motorsports Planet stores nationwide from April 2021 through August 2021 for about $200.
