A new study shows children are getting injured less on ATVs. The study looked at emergency records throughout the United States.

"Precautions and safety need to start at home with the parents, personal responsibility with the parents, helmets, gloves eye protection, long pants or work boots," said Bobbi Bagley, a sales representative with Valley Motor Sports.

ATV safety is major part of Bagley's job. He has to verify that each customer meets certain age requirements. Those requirements vary from maker to maker. Some ATVs require children to be older than 10-years-old.

Bagley provides customers with a DVD after they buy an ATV. It provides safety tips for riding it. Anyone who purchases an ATV is now provided with free courses through the ATV Safety Institute. is happy to provide a forum for commenting and discussion. Please respect and abide by the house rules:
