Quad bike safety focus 

The TFGA endorses recent comments by Greg Hall MLC who has urged the State’s political parties to consider stronger safety measures for quad bikes, such as mandatory roll bars and helmets coupled with an appropriate rebate scheme. 

 As Mr Hall has stated there have been a number of fatalities in Tasmania and these have often been related to rollovers.  Fitted roll bars or crush protection devices in hand with helmets is an excellent way to reduce the current injuries and death toll. 

 The TFGA joins with Greg Hall in calling on all political parties to support a rebate scheme for these critical safety devices.
