    Atvs are too heavy an more. They are going between 400-600lbs and if they come at you, during a rollover, it’s very dangerous. In past years, they used to be 200-300lb and if they fell on you, you’d just kick it a bit and it was a non factor. They are just too big and heavy.

    Same in our small coal town. One family in particular is always with the ATVs. Even their kid who is seven riding without a helmet with the two year old sitting on the front of it. It is disgusting , noisy and just plain annoying. Usually Sunday is quad day for us outside of McAdoo. I know the police have greater things to worry about so I really can’t fault them.

    :Hazleton police have said what caused this deadly crash.”
    They have said? What caused it then?

        That’s my question. From what I’ve heard, alcohol was involved. I live a street over from where this happened, on the same block. There is a perpetual problem with atv riders riding the streets and local highways, eluding police, and causing dangerous conditions for pedestrians, drivers, and motorcycle riders. I ride a motorcycle, and I have to be cautious all the time around here, and stop at intersections that have no stop signs because of these people who insist on breaking the law. I feel for the family, but this accident was not entirely unexpected around here, considering the complete disregard of laws and regulations concerning off-road vehicles on the streets. But I believe the sentence should have read “Hazleton police have *NOT* said what caused this deadly crash.”
