And if that was not enough, Steering control and crash hazards have prompted BB Buggies Inc. to bring back some of their Bad Boy Buggies off-road utility vehicles. The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) announced the 2011 nationwide recall a few days ago. It was issued after discovering that the steering assembly arm can break, which can cause the driver to lose control and result in a crash hazard, and consumers are also advised to contact the dealer..
