On May 10, 2003, Pam and Steve Saylor dropped off their son Chandler at a friend’s "swimming" birthday party. At some point a decision was made to allow the boys at the party to ride ATVs (all terrain vehicles). It was a decision that would forever change the lives of the Saylors - and one that would end Chandler’s life.
After his death, Chandler’s parents worked for many years to implement ATV safety legislation to protect other children in South Carolina. Their dedication and perseverance paid off on May 11, 2011 when Chandler’s Law was signed by Governor Nikki Haley.
With Chandler’s Law, South Carolina will become one of 45 states with ATV safety legislation. The legislation establishes basic training, safety equipment, and ride the right size ATV requirements for children. The legislation also provides parents with an option to title ATVs, helpful if the ATV is ever stolen. For detailed information about Chandler’s Law and its requirements, refer to the Questions and Answers page.
