An interview with Motorcycle Industry Council (MIC) general counsel Paul Vitrano is presented. When asked about the impact of the lead ban to the U.S. motorcycle industry, Vitrano says that the ban has limited the availability of youth-model dirtbikes and all-terrain vehicles in the country. He shares the business loss of the industry since the passage of the Consumer Product Safety Information Act (CPSIA). He adds that the industry is urging the Congress to stop the ban.
