All-terrain vehicle manufacturer Polaris is recalling almost 14,000 ATVs due to defects that can cause the vehicles’ throttle speed control stops to “break and become stuck, posing a crash hazard.”

The company reports that it knows of at least 18 instances in which the throttle stops became stuck, resulting in at least one crash. That crash resulted in a minor injury.

MiamiHerald.com reports that Polaris owners can check their ATV vehicle ID numbers at the Polaris website to verify whether their vehicles are part of the recall. If the vehicle is part of the recall, Polaris advises owners to stop using the vehicles immediately and contact them for a replacement throttle speed control bracket.
