Bill to Protect Children from ATV Accidents

Posted under 0fa38270-7ae3-426a-adcf-f6ed129d5b1a

The parents of a 16 year-old South Carolina boy who died in an ATV accident in 2003 are pushing a bill that would make it illegal for people under the age of 15 to operate an ATV. It would also require that anyone who receives an ATV as a gift apply for a title for the vehicle from the DMV and complete a safety course.

While many in government support this bill, some are preventing it from becoming a law. The former governor of South Carolina, Mark Sanford, has seemingly refused to sign the bill as he has vetoed it two times. Those arguing against the bill takes away a parent's right to decide how to protect their child. The mother of the boy who died on an ATV is devastated with people's reactions to the bill and is still pushing to have it pass.
