#1 Yeah, like turn off the key, moron. My kids wanted to use our family snow machine when we lived up north when they were 12 or so. So I did training, showing them all the usual stuff, AND the kill button, AND the dead man lanyard switch, AND the key. So we came down to check ride. My son and I were going across a frozen lake, heading for the trees. I pulled the throttle on full, then we were heading for the trees at 60 mph. My son said, "Dad, what do we do?" I said, "Better think of something, or we will be killed." He hit the kill switch and we came to a stop. He was shaking, but he never forgot it, and he is still around at age 26.
