    Quad Bike Insurance

    This is such a hot topic right now, not just in ZA but also in the UK. Here are a few concerns we addressed in a post to a Quad Bike Magazine just a few months ago.

    Firstly, there should be a law introduced whereby the child can not ride one of these without a supervising adult – no excuses! Also, should the Quad Bike or ATV be taken onto a public area, the Police to have the power to remove the machine and crush it. Thirdly, and here is the big one – stop the manufacturers from putting flashing signal indicatoors, lights and brake lights on them as standard

    Why? Because kids think that because they are fit for the road, that they can be used on the road. Also, should they use them on a public highway or land without concent, that the guardian is then liable under the law for a heavy fine.

    Thos were our issue’s – but we went one deeper than that, and suggested that there be a specific test to ride on of these machine – because as the law stands right now, anyone over 17 can ride one on a car licence – and let us be frank, they handle nor drive like a car!!

    Interesting topic – I have RSS’d you and will blog roll you, if that’s ok?

    Quad Bikes and ATVs need to be governed properly – there are far to many fatalities because of people who just don’t understand them!
