Summary: Sept. 2014
Extract: The door came down on the decedent pinning him between the bottom of the closing garage door and riding lawn mower.

The victim found the device while doing yardwork in his yard. He picked up the device to inspect it when it exploded. The victim sustained an amputation to his fingers, and laceration to the palm of his hand. He was in critical condition due to prior medical conditions aggravated by the explosion.

Summary: Briefing Package: Proposed Rule on Safety Standard for Recreational Off-Highway Vehicles ROVs
Extract: This switch could be similar to the seat switches in riding lawn mowers that shut off the engine if a rider is not detected. Similarly, in a ROV, if the presence of a passenger is not detected, the switch would not include the passenger seat belt sensor in circuit for determining whether the speed of the ROV should be limited. We estimate that the cost of this switch is $13 per seat, based on the retail price of a replacement switch for the seat switch in a riding lawn mower. There will be labor costs involved in installing the components needed to meet this requirement.
