ATV rescues an automobile


This funny story almost seems made up considering you have a dealer, family member and manufacturer all involved. However, the pictures provide the evidence.

So what do you do if you get a GMC Envoy stuck in the snow and mud? Pull it out with a Polaris Sportsman 800 and winch of course! I like this story not only because it fits my theme of the good potential ATVs have, but I also have a growing negative sentiment in relation to automobiles and transportation in this country in general.

I mentioned some of this in my popular post on the Model One electric ATV, but basically I believe quads deserve consideration as a mode of transportation and not just for recreation. What's more, despite the ongoing media frenzy around the dangers of ATVs, I've been doing my own research that shows how much worse cars and trucks on US roads are. And I'm not talking just about sheer numbers. Stay tuned.
