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.
