Abstract
In 1996, the National Committee for Childhood Agricultural Injury Prevention (NCCAIP) recommended that youth be prohibited from operating farm vehicles on public roads without a driver's license (NCCAIP, 1996). The American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) followed suit in 2001 in their policy statement on the prevention of agricultural injuries among children and adolescents (AAP, 2001). Both of these groups developed this recommendation through a consensus process that relied on the expert judgment of experienced professionals. To date, no action has been taken to put this recommendation into practice, perhaps for want of empirical evidence?
