    There are places where kids can race on go-karts.

    I see your point but it's hard to draw the line. We had a boy here locally who was killed by a line drive in a baseball game a few years ago. I also recall, maybe 5 years ago, when two high school kids were killed by bulls they were trying to ride at rodeos.
