In the U.S., the number of All-Terrain Vehicle (ATV)-related emergency department visits has more than doubled in recent years. Unfortunately, children under 16 years of age account for roughly one-third of all ATV-related deaths and injuries. Given the rapidly increasing injury rates disproportionately affecting children under 16 years of age, researchers recommend taking actions to help prevent injuries and deaths related to the use of ATVs.
