DC Insider: Federal agency webpage is inflammatory

Go Back

The American Motorcyclist Association and its All-Terrain Vehicle Association oppose the language chosen by the Consumer Product Safety Commission for its new infographic webpage entitled CPSC Infographic: Big Real Rough Tough Deadly ATV Statistics.

What exactly is the CPSC’s intention when it selected the words “rough” and “tough?” And the use of the word “deadly” implies what we can only infer is an extreme bias against ATVs by the CPSC.

I am perplexed with the use of the word “deadly” when the CPSC’s own statistics indicate the ATV safety record is improving.

The result: this new infographic webpage may result in a harmful relationship between the responsible motorized community and the CPSC.

The AMA wants to know what you think of the new infographic webpage. Sound off with a comment.
