Why do quad bikes cause such a high rate of death?
Quad bikes are the biggest killer on Australian farms, claiming 230 lives in the last 15 years.
In Queensland more than 70 people have lost their lives and thousands more injured while using quad bikes.
Quad bikes can be unstable on anything other than flat terrain but they are sometimes seen as being an ideal machine for all-terrain agricultural activities.
To maintain stability in difficult terrain, quad bikes require an active riding technique that can be beyond the physical capacity of some riders and lead to fatigue and an inability to retain control of the vehicle. This is especially relevant in the case of older persons or children.
Loss of control of a quad bike often results in a roll over. Roll over events are the single largest cause of quad bike fatalities.
