New safety campaign aims to reduce quad bike related deaths in Queensland

The Queensland Government has launched a new safety campaign urging people to ride safely on quad bikes.

The campaign reminds Queenslanders that quad bikes are the leading cause of death on farms.

Industrial Relations Minister Grace Grace said more than 50 people have been killed in quad bike incidents in the last ten years.

“Some weren’t wearing helmets, some were children using adult sized bikes, and others didn’t have the right training,” Ms Grace said.

“Quad bikes can be a really useful tool, and great fun too, but I don’t want any tragedies because basic safety rules are overlooked.
