PETER WALDNER CARTOONThe Board Members from the Cook County ATV Club want to wish everyone a safe, happy and blessed Thanksgiving. We are so thankful for all your club support!

ATVers have until November 24 to weigh in on whether the Consumer Product Safety Commission should establish a “performance requirement” that would prevent or reduce the likelihood of passengers riding on an ATV. Without comments from ATVers across the United States, heading out into the woods with a passenger riding behind could be thing of the past!
The Cook County ATV Club and the ATV Association of Minnesota (ATVAM)) are commenting on this, but the CPSC also needs to hear from individuals as well. Do you enjoy riding with a passenger? How often do you ride with a spouse or a child behind you?         How many miles have you traveled with a companion?

Do you feel having a passenger makes an ATV unsafe? Or do you feel the safety of an ATV depends on the driver?

Is there some design change that could be made to make an ATV safer for the ATV driver and passenger? The CPSC needs to hear about it!

Please visit the CPSC website to get ideas for comments or contact ATV Club Secretary Rhonda Silence at  loonybin1314@msn.com.

Visit www.regulations.gov and search “Docket No. CSPC-2012-0048. That page is also where you submit comments — just click on the “Comment Now” link.

If you prefer to mail comments, send them to:

Office of the Secretary

U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission

Room 820

4330 East West Highway

Bethesda, MD 20814

 Please comment before Nov. 24!
