That's not what people are saying at all! The simple fact is that life carries with it an inherrent amount of risk. Of course, you, being a mamby-pamby nanny-state Democrap onlt sees need for more regulation. I'll bet that if you and your ilk had your way, pre-schoolers couldn't go out on the play-groung equipment unless they were outfitted in full-body kevlar. That's not realistic.

If your small little body falls off a bike or skateboard, you can pull the bike or skateboard off of you. You can't push off a heavy ATV, especially if it crushes you as soon as it flips.
There is NO way I will ever let my children ride one of those. There are things in life you can't avoid that will hurt your children, and this isn't one of them.
Put your kid in a bubble and set him/her aside and just enjoy that. My 8 yr old was riding his ATV last night and I'm sure with a nice day we will be at it again. F-in have to enjoy life a little.

Seriously people. Have some compassion.If you knew the whole story, you would not write such cruel things. People react differently to these types of situations. I think the parents were in shock. Obviously they would change things if they could go back but that is impossible now. Things always seem so inocent at first until something bad happens. Nobody thought anything bad would happen to this little girl. My girls ride ATV's all the time without a helmet & I never thought much of it til now either. Accidents happen. Leave the poor people alone & let them grieve. Shame on you!

Kids can't drive a car, why allow them to drive an ATV?

A car is much safer than an ATV, air bags, seat belts, smooth riding surface, traffic control, safer controls, less likly to roll over, etc!!
