Why are riding mowers, ATVs banned from public roadways?

I have a question

If recumbent bicycles which are very hard to see and move slowly, along with tractors which are large enough to see easily but also slow-moving, are allowed on public roadways, why are ATVs and the larger riding mowers (which move around the same speed as tractors) banned from public roadways?

Thanks, Joyce M. Coomer - The question is above our pay grade, but perhaps a reader will know the answer. - EW
