Quad bike warn­ing

Central and North Burnett Times - - VOICE OF THE BURNETT -

RID­ING a quad bike can be a very dan­ger­ous ac­tiv­ity.

All rid­ers, no mat­ter how ex­pe­ri­enced, need to take pre­cau­tions to avoid se­ri­ous in­jury or death.

Half of the deaths re­ported since 2011 were as­so­ci­ated with recre­ational use.

Over the last three years, at least one in three rid­ers who died was not wear­ing a hel­met.

En­sur­ing you pre­pare safe, wear safe and ride safe will re­duce your risk of be­ing se­ri­ously in­jured or even killed.

Quad bikes are not suit­able for all ter­rains. They can­not be safely used on all slopes and sur­faces. Even ex­pe­ri­enced rid­ers have been in­jured. Delia Rickard
