136 people have sadly died from quad bike accidents between 2011 and 2019. This is why the Australian Government has introduced a mandatory safety standard for all new quad bikes sold in Australia.
From 11 October 2020, all new and imported second-hand quad bikes will come with additional safety information. This includes a hang tag, a warning label and guidance in the operator’s manual. The hang tag will help you compare the stability of different quad bike models.
