Mandatory Rollover Protection For Quad Bikes


An article regarding the proposal by the ACCC to make rollover protection mandatory on quad bikes.

Whilst Honda and Yamaha try to dismiss the proposal and even threaten to quit the Australian market, the statistics stated by the ACCC that there has not been a fatality involving some 10,000 quad bikes that have been retrofitted with rollover protection appears to be very hard to dismiss.

If it was left up to the manufacturers, they would undoubtedly still be selling their even more dangerous three wheel offroad bikes if the Government had not banned them.

Obviously just another case of profit over consumers lives.
