Published October 16, 2007

HONOLULU, HI (BRAIN)—The National Park Service recently suspended commerical bicycle tours within Haleakala National Park, which is one of the most popular tourist activities on Maui, according to a LA Times story.

"With three fatalaties and several serious accidents within a year, it is important to stop and critically analyze this commercial activity in the park," said Marilyn Parris, park superintendent.

The "safety standard" is effective Oct. 10 for at least 60 days and is needed after last week's fatal bicycle accident, the third in a year, according to the LA Times.
