All-terrain vehicles: A case study in law and the prevention of injuries

Stephen P. Teret, Janine Jagger

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


Law is one of the most effective tools of injury prevention. Legislation, regulation, and litigation have all been used successfully to reduce the toll of injuries. The article examines the full range of the law as it has been used to prevent injuries associated with all-terrain vehicles. The rise in popularity of such vehicles, the realization of the injuries associated with their use, and the law’s response to their hazards provide a valuable case study of how the various aspects of the law can be used as tools for injury prevention.
