What is being done to improve data collection methods around quad bike incidents?
In early 2016 we engaged the University of New South Wales Transport and Road Safety (UNSW TARS), who delivered world-leading research into quad bike safety in 2015, to undertake an independent survey study to determine the efficacy of OPDs as well as helmets compliant with NZS 8600:2002. The outcomes of this research are expected to be handed down in late 2017. You can participate in the survey by the UNSW TARS.
We have also been working in collaboration with NSW Police on the development of a checklist for first responders to quad bike incidents. The checklist contains essential information that will improve future quad bike safety.
