Quad bikes and other utility vehicles
Quad bikes are four-wheeled agricultural bikes commonly used on farms. They are also known as 'all terrain vehicles' (ATVs), however they are not safe for use in all terrains.
Four-wheeled quad bikes are a popular 'workhorse' on the farm. Unfortunately, these vehicles are a cause of fatal and non-fatal incidents each year.
Side-by-side vehicles or multi-utility vehicles are increasingly used instead of quad bikes.
