I know this drivers mother, and she and her son are wacked out. She is unstable and should not have children, and I blame her for getting her son the ATV. She wonders why she is single and can't find a man. and that is all she is worried about, she could care less about her children.
She actually got mad a someone when they said to her that her son was too young to have an ATV. She got it for him so he would leave her alone and she could hore herself out. Now an innocent girl is dead because she has no judgment.

I think the only way to move forward is for the parents of currently-alive children to take some responsibility and not let their children operate dangerous equipment. there is a reason that 4 yr olds arent allowed to drive forklifts. guess what.. its the same dam- reason that children operating atv's befall unfortunate accidents!
they're children!
they dont make consistently sound decisions!
they rely on us, adults, to prevent them from hurting themselves!
little kids do NOT belong on powerful motorized equipment!

Well said republican_bob. Enough of passing blame to the parents of the deceased. What we need are ALL Parents demanding that ATV's be banned period. Too many kids are being killed. This tragedy has hit Hammmonton twice in the last 3 years. MY kids are grown up and healthy so I can't relate to what these kids parents have gone through. I just know that if it was my kids that I'd be speaking in Trenton or DC putting an end to ATV's. Isn't there some sort of law that'll make you lose your license if your kid drives your ATV or maybe have it so that the kid loses their license or has to wait 3 years to get it.

when we were children we shot one another with bb guns.
very stupid but children do very stupid things.
children do not belong on high-powered conbustion-engine equipment.
the parents who allow such activities are remiss and negligent. The parents of children who operate a car and die are held accountable in the court of law and tried in front of a jury of their peers. when will such be done to the negligent absentees who allow their children to do things like this?
if someone else let your kid do this and your kid got hurt, you'd run mach-3 to the lawyer to sue THEM!
this stupid backwoods activity wont desist until we make a political move by trying one parent or set of parents for their derelict duty.
we dont even have to convict. just make a landmark case and then these beer swilling woods dwellers would be forced to PARENT (verb).

Parents today want to be friends with their kids. They want them to have the things they've never had. There's very little parenting anymore. They just want the kids to be happy. The problem is that we have a society of ME FIRST mentality. Parents have created a situation where kids no longer listen to them and vice versa where parents don't really listen or talk to their kids anymore. Most don't know with who their kids interact with or what they do in school or after school.

That's why America has so many problems. Parents aren't being parents and they aren't talking to their kids as a parent. My son might get annoyed when I regularly ask him where he's going, with who, and when. By doing so, I'm modeling to him how to raise his own kids when he's a man. I just think most parents don't know how to parent because their own Moms and Dads never modeled it for them on how to raise a good family and have communication with one another. You'd think with today's technology that parents and kids can communicate more. Instead kids are communicating more with their friends while parents are communicating more with their work.

all of you people who just keep badmouthing this accident, it was a VERY tragic loss for an amazing little girl who touched everyones heart she met. it was such a shock to lose dom, and this year with the saige vazquez accident. things happen, it's noones fault, it was how it was meant to be, and we all wish we could have changed the way it worked out, but everyone is suffering still, and it'd be nice if you could just stop the rude comments and upsetting people who were close to dom..thank you.

This parent has paid the ultimate price for not properly supervising their child. There loss is the worst possible thing that could happen to anyone and they will be kept in my prayers.
What is important is how do we stop this from happening again?
I think we need to understand that children are called children for a reason. They need supervision and guidance in life. We are their protectors and when we fail this is the type of thing that happens. I'm not one to think the government should be micro parenting, but if there was a law that held the parent responsible for supervising a child that is operating a ATV, would this child be dead? Would they have been out at 10:30 at night? This is not the first time an ATV with a child as an operator has been killed on the streets of Winslow Township. How many more have to get killed before we hold the parents accountable? Maybe we need to license these children and give them formal training? Should there be a minimum age to operate an ATV? Nothing can bring this child back, but we can surely prevent this from happening again.
How are you gonna blame the parents? you can't do that to them, its just sick how people keep thinking that its there fault when they didnt do anything. they lost there daughter who many people loved so much and now u wanna go harrass them. take that crap somewhere else

you can't blame the people in charge of the kids? ok.. that makes no sense. i already covered this, it's people screwing around doing things they're not supposed to be doing.

it's like my dad always said "you get hurt when you screw around"...

Is there any type of public awareness as to the dangers of riding ATVs being done by the schools or parents? Four years ago my little brother got killed by someone on an ATV while he was riding his bike. I've just moved to the Hammonton area and only know that recently two kids in this area have been lost due to ATV's in Hammonton. Kids are so easily drawn into extreme sports, I don't think we can easily blame parents on this. This is more and more becoming mainstream for kids today. This has got to stop though or more kids will die unnecessarily,.

Some kid 12-16 was racing down my street at 7:01 am this morning. What was he racing in....an ATV. Why aren't parents watching their kids anymore??????? I've never seen any ATV's on my street. I guess it's some new kid in the neighborhood or someone just got a new toy. Most parents I know in Hammonton would never buy their kids ATV after the recent deaths of some kids in ATV crashes in Hammonton.

Kids were racing on my street on their ATVs and a few times in the winter a parent was dragging a kid on a sled using their ATV. These parents should get arrested or have their kids taken away. Parents shouldn't buy their kids ATVs and if they do they should supervise them ALL THE TIME and stop the senseless deaths of wreckless teens and innocent victims. These parents just don't care and when something bad happens they blame everyone else except themselves and their kids. 3 Kids have been killed in Hammonton the last several years due to ATVs. THey should be banned throughout South Jersey.

Kids to this day are raising around in ATVs on the streets in Hammonton and in the woods/trails. Parents just don't know what they're kids are doing nowadays. They don't remember Nicole or sadly care that she tragically died. Parents are still buying kids ATVs in my town. I just don't get!!!!!!!! Yet they still buy them ATVs and then wonder why people blame them when their kids or others get killed. It simply poor parenting. Good parents don't let their kids rid ATVs unsupervised ever. Its about responsiblity in raising your kids. I chew out a kids mom when she was following her kids in her car while they road their SUVs down my street. I guess they were returning from some dirt trail. Parents and kids with ATVs don't care They think they have a right to risk others lives. I wish there was more awareness in our schools about making dangerous decisions.
