Re: prayers please (child death mentioned)

Prayers for the family. That is such a terrible thing to happen.


While its a sad thing to happen it also makes me a little mad because it gives a bad "rep" to the ATVS. I think they are perfectly safe as long as they are used following the guidelines on them and correctly. Just like cars. We do let DS1 ride on our ATV. But only with an adult (over 21), with a helmet and around the yard not off roading yet. All 3 of our ATVS say they must be driven by someone over 16 and while wearing a helmet.

So sad, my mother is from Wagoner and I know exactly where that street is so it feels like it could be someone I knew once. Praying for the family!

Not to hijack at all, but I've been trying to find info on what type of helmet is appropriate for a child riding an ATV...like would a motorcycle helmet be ideal?

Newbie- DS has one like this http://www.skichalet.com/Smith_Youth...9064201000.htm and an XXS Off Road helmet we got from the ATV store. The Ski helmet it lighter then the Off road one and works for the low speeds we are going.
