I thought this would be of interest to this community:

There's a very sobering video in the article as well.

I live in NY, they did mention it in the article that we have a ROPS program, I have used it myself, NY will pay up to 80% of the cost for a roll bar installed on a tractor, you can do this once a year, I have done this with the big tractors, I have no interest in doing so on a cub

Really great article, but....

Of the stories they told, every one was "because they were in a hurry", and one tractor was "rengineered"

Not to sound unsympathetic, but a bit of caution and attention go a looong ways.

Not saying in every case, i mean, crap happens, but yall get my drift
