I was born on May 9th 2006,
I am forever 9 years old.
On June 14th 2015, while enjoying a weekend away, I was riding a ATV that was too big for me and was unable to stabilize this machine flipping it over onto myself.
My Mom and her friends are hoping to pass this Law in Ontario so that the suggestions stated on ATV's are enforced. Please support them in this change for Ontario, which will mean that no child under the age of 14 is allowed to ride a full size ATV'
My mom is adjusting to a life without me now and I know it's so hard for her, but she believes that once this law is passed, it could save other children just like me.
Please share my story to help educate, influence and make an impact on people, parents and children about the dangers and risks that should not be taken with kids like me under 14 on ATV's. ATV manufacturers offer guidelines on engine size for young rider's and safe ATV use. Most ATVs are equipped with a label detailing the manufacturer's and CPSC's recommended age for that particular model.
Children under the age of 14 should never operate a full size ATV. Here In Ontario this is only a suggestion, Children under 14 lack the skill & strength to correct an unstable ATV with the weight ranging from 500lbs-1000lbs & hitting speeds up to 50mph.
Even children 14-16 should only ride an ATV with an engine size of 90cc's or less. Rollovers and collisions happen often. According to Statistics Canada, there were 187 ATV-related deaths in 2007 (up from 142 in 2000). Among them were 18 children between the ages of 1 and 14.
Between 2001 and 2011, 33% of ATV-related emergency-room visits were in kids younger than 16.
