When ATVs were introduced to the market in 1971, most were three-wheelers. However, due to their propensity for rollover accidents, they were removed from the market. Following a 1987 lawsuit filed by the U.S. Justice Department, ATV manufacturers agreed to stop producing these dangerous three-wheeled ATVs. Still, an estimate 2.4 million three-wheelers had already been sold; many remain in use today.
In addition to ATVs exciting recreational uses, all-terrain vehicles are commonly used for:
- Ranching and handling livestock
- Cargo transportation
- Transportation between remote rural locations
