A bill that was passed in the hopes of controlling the massive use of lead in children’s toys may make children unsafe in one specific area.
The ban of lead in a ‘child’s toy’ has had an impact on child ATVs and dirt bikes. Many of these vehicles are designed for children with safety features, less horse power, and less speed. The recent bill has consequently effected these items because of the lead contained within the engine.
What is now occurring is that parents are buying larger, bigger, faster bikes for their child because those are the only ones available. This purchase is putting some children on vehicles not designed for them at all.
Companies and business involved in this are asking for an exemption from this policy because of the risk of exposure is almost impossible.
