All-terrain vehicle safety: a long-standing issue!

All-terrain vehicle safety: a long-standing issue!

Orthopedic Nursing 27(4): 243-245

An increasing number of children younger than 16 are being killed or severely injured from riding adult-sized all-terrain vehicles.

NAON has been consistent with attempting to get the word out and prevent these injuries and deaths so we can improve the safety of our children.
