Tragic lawnmower accidents may occur


Never ride a child on a garden tractor or lawnmower, even with the blade(s) shut off! Children may fall off and be seriously injured.

They are attracted to mowers and mowing activity. Children who have been given rides in the past may suddenly appear in the mowing area for another ride.

Never assume children will remain where you last saw them. Have another responsible adult watch them away from the mowing area. Be alert; turn machine off if a child enters the area.
