Bad Boy Enterprises Hit With $715,000 Civil Penalty

The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) has announced that Bad Boy Enterprises, LLC of Natchez, Miss., has agreed to pay a civil penalty of $715,000. The penalty settlement agreement has been provisionally accepted by the Commission.

According to the CPSC, the settlement is the result of allegations that Bad Boy Enterprises failed to immediately report, as required by federal law, a defect involving Classic Buggies off-road utility vehicles with Series brand and SePex brand electric motors that resulted in sudden acceleration incidents and injuries to consumers. The off-road utility vehicles with Series motors were sold between 2003 and June 2007 and the off-road utility vehicles with a SePex motors were sold between 2007 and June 2010. Both the Series and SePex off-road utility vehicles could suddenly accelerate during use or while the ignition is in the idle position, creating a runaway vehicle situation.

In 2008, Bad Boy Enterprises implemented a repair program for the SePex off-road utility buggies to address the sudden acceleration defect without notifying the Commission. The firm did not report to the Commission until August 2009. CPSC and Bad Boy Enterprises announced the first recall for sudden acceleration on October 21, 2009.
