CPSC ATV Safety Summit Hot
The Consumer Product Safety Commission is hosting an ATV Safety Summit. There will be panelists from a variety of backgrounds at the summit. Russ and Karen will both be presenting during the summit as will many of our friends from SVIA.
For those people who are not able to attend the summit, there is an opportunity to comment.
As always, comments that support OHV recreation are always helpful, and usually are not plentiful. Send in comments about the positive things your state, clubs, or organizations do to promote the safe and responsible use of Off-Highway Vehicles.
Here is the information about the summit:
