Coalition Lauds Passage of Bill Mandating ATV Safety Standard
READ MORE>>>August 2, 2008
The Coalition for Safe and Responsible ATV Use -- made up of BRP, Honda, Kawasaki, Polaris, Suzuki, and Yamaha -- said this week that it applauded Congress for requiring all companies that import or sell all-terrain vehicles in the United States to comply with the same vehicle safety standards and to implement the same training and other safety initiatives that established ATV manufacturers have followed for years. Part of the Consumer Product Safety Improvement Act of 2008 (H.R. 4040) passed by the House of Representatives July 30, the ATV provision creates a mandatory safety standard for ATVs. The Senate also is expected to approve the bill, and President Bush is expected to sign the legislation in August.
