• There were 187 ATV-related deaths in 2007, up from 142 in 2000. Of those 18 were children between the ages of one and 14.
• Between 2001 and 2011 33 per cent of ATV-related emergency room visits involved children under 16.
Tyler, 9, was killed in an ATV accident on June 14. A website written in his voice urges people to sign a petition calling for new legislation called the Tyler Massey Law, which would bar children under 14 from riding full-size ATVs.
“I was born on May 9, 2006, I am forever nine years old,” reads the introduction on the website, which goes on to say that organizers hope the new law could save the lives of other children like Tyler.
