  1. he is trying to throw the responsibility on each rider but it is really up to the state to study the potential dangers and develop some lifesaving guidelines and preventive measures

    • Riding act’s & dirt bikes can be very enjoyable. The state should dedicate space for this activity. Hiring qualified instructor’s would definitely ameliorate the situation. Let’s give it a try.

  2. That is the whole problem they sell these vehicles but their is no where to ride them you have to go to Pennsylvania and pay to ride them there why can’t they do this around here or stop selling these vehicles
