Experts say Mich. laws neglect safety
State's regulations for snowmobile use are minimal

Michigan's "Ski Area Safety Act of 1962" stands out not only because it is the nation's oldest ski safety act, but also, say experts, because it has the weakest provisions for skier safety.

In Michigan, the only regulation for snowmobiles requires that they operate with at least one white light on the front.

Marc and Anne Vachon, whose 7-year-old son was struck and killed by a snowmobile at the Alpine Valley ski resort, would like to see Michigan use regulations like those in Colorado.

Watch where you're going whether skiing or whatever. Next they'll cry for snowmobilers to wear a flashing red light on top of their helmets? :dizzy:

Dont think thewre are too many laws-and less enforcement.

Have you ever been passed on the highway by a snowmobile-at 40?? I dont believe they were intended for that..
