Polaris Urges Off-Road Enthusiasts to Stand Up and Let Your Voice Be Heard
Proposed U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission ma ndates negatively affect handling and performance capabilities of Side-by-Si de Vehicles
Staff

Polaris® Industries Inc. (NYSE: PII), the leading manufacturer of off-road vehicles, today asked off-road enthusiasts to stand up and let their voices be heard regarding the Consumer Product Safety Commission’s (CPSC) proposed mandates for off-road, side-by-side vehicles (ROVs). 


Despite willingness by Polaris and other manufacturers, along with the Recreation Off-Highway 
Vehicle Association (ROHVA), to work in unison with the CPSC to develop ongoing safety 
improvements for all off-highway vehicles, the CPSC appears determined to mandate handling 
and performance capabilities, and require excessive and potentially unsafe restraint systems for 
future ROVs. If not halted, the mandate will unnecessarily limit design freedom in the off-road 
industry and negatively impact off-road customers.  


The proposed CPSC “rule” would require Polaris and other manufacturers to make arbitrary 
design changes to all future side-by-side vehicles. The propose changes could lead to future
off-road vehicles with reduced steering response, reduction in ground clearance, and more 
restrictive driver and passenger restraint and seatbelt systems.  


“As an off-road community, we have a tremendous challenge in front of us,” said Paul Vitrano, 
VP, global government relations for Polaris. “As a unified community, we can protect our right to 
design, build and ride for today and the future.” Polaris is asking off-road enthusiasts to reach out to Congress, and voice their opposition. More information about the proposed mandate and how to speak out can be found at www.StopTheROVMandate.com
