KY Planning Huge ATV Riding Area
The state goal is to create an ATV trail system that will span over five adjoining counties — Clay, Owsley, Perry, Breathitt and Leslie. State and county oOfficials hope to have the area accessible to ATV riders by next fall (2008), with long-term plans including trails for horseback riding, hiking and biking. As part of this goal, two Eastern Kentucky families have agreed to open their properties of more than 10,000 acres of scenic terrain on the outskirts of Buckhorn Lake for ATV, horsebak riding and hiking by the public. State and local officials have been trying to capitalize on the notoriously rugged mountains of Eastern Kentucky for years, and this ATV trail system is something that they feel will help get the job done. Good job Kentucky. We can't wait for the trails to be opened.

44 Year Old Man Facing Charges of Endangerment On ATV
A 44
year old man is facing charges of endangerment after crashing a two-person ATV vehicle with his three young children riding on board with him, according to Scottsdale, AZ police. The father, whose name we won't mention, was attempting to turn the ATV on a steep incline at McDowell Sonoran Preserve when it rolled. He was flown by helicopter to a Phoenix area hospital and diagnosed with a broken hip.

Two of the children suffered minor injuries; the 9-year-old boy had a sore left foot Luckily only 2 of the kids were hurt. One had a sore foot and another received a scratch on her cheek. None of the 3 children riding the ATV were wearing a helmet, as is required by Arizona state law for children under 18. The vehicle is built to carry only two people at a time, and according to police the terrain was dangerous for the number of people oin the vehicle. The father could also could be cited for the number of passengers in the vehicle and the lack of helmets. We hope they throw the book at this guy! These are the kind of idiots that give all of us a bad name by breaking laws, and doing stupid things to endanger the lives of others.

New Jersey Finally Getting ATV Park
The state is finally moving along to fulfill its promise of an ATV park by buying a 224-acre former sand and gravel strip mine in South Jersey. This is part of an effort by the Department of Environmental Protection to provide a place for ATV enthusiasts to ride legally as the state promised a number of years ago to proivde. DEP Deputy Commissioner, John S. Watson, said his department has spent $1.2 million in Green Acres funds to purchase the old strip mining tract in the Pinelands in Monroe, Gloucester County. Plans also call for a second ATV park in Ocean County. The project is of course opposed by the wacko environmentalists, who would have us sit on our hands and do nothing for entertainment or pleasure. Its about time New Jersey politicos start filling this long-ago promise.

Researchers Telling Parents ATVs Are A Bad Idea for Kids
An article titled Researchers issue warning about kids and ATV's has been making waves in the papers across the USA. According to the article "Parents are being warned once again to think twice about buying their youngsters an all-terrain vehicle for Christmas or any other special occasion. But manufacturers of the popular off road vehicles respond that they can be safe when riders are prudent. Researchers at the Unversity of Arkansas said that, based on 500 case histories of young people treated after ATV accidents, youngsters under 16 should be barred from riding the vehicles. "ATV use by children is intrinsically dangerous because of the instability of the vehicles and the small size of children," they said in a statement issued Monday. About a fourth of all U.S. ATV deaths -- 120 in 2005 -- involved youngsters under 16. An estimated 40,000 youngsters were treated in emergency rooms that year for ATV-related injuries, according to the Consumer Product Safety Commission."
