Summary: Westat Phase 2 Final Report - User Acceptance of Seat Belt Speed Limiters on ROVs
Extract: Several participants commented that 20 mph seemed close to the speed that an average riding lawn mower goes, and those do not require seat belts. 4.5 Seat Belt Speed Limiter 4.5.1 User Acceptance In general, acceptance of the speed limiter appeared to be low among participants. Participant responses as to why seemed to echo what is heard from people who oppose government mandates for passenger vehicle seat belt use or motorcycle helmet use, citing personal freedoms as a primary factor. One participant explained their opposition to a limiter by saying that it goes against the nature of the vehicle.

Summary: Lawnmowers
Extract: This standard reduces cuts and amputations caused by contact with the blades of walk-behind power lawn mowers. It requires generally that, for power lawn mowers with rotary blades: (1) The mower's blade must stop turning within 3 seconds after the operator lets go of the mower's controls. (2) The design of the rear mower deck and of the area around the discharge chute must keep the operator's foot from coming in contact with the rotating blade while his or her hands are on the mower's controls. Reel-type mowers do not need to meet the performance standards. However, both rotary mowers and reel-type mowers must have a label that warns about the danger of cuts and amputation from contact with the blade.
