People are just too quick to judge. Riding in an ATV can be done legally and safely. However, all risks cannot be eliminated. As this article demonstrates, somebody on an ATV can risk suffering very serious injury or even death. This is a very sad article that shows the dangers of children who ride on ATVs.
However, when someone thinks of a child being killed on an ATV, the first reaction far too many people is to blame the parents. Or, in blaming nobody, to assume that this is just a risk that was taken. However, many times there was negligence by somebody else. Many times, this tragedy did not have to occur.
