Overview

An inquest into quad bike related deaths in Queensland was held by the Deputy State Coroner, John Lock. The QLD Coroner’s Court released the findings of the inquest on 3 August 2015.

The Coroner stated ‘the evidence gathered during this multiple inquest raises many issues about the safety of quad bikes, including the importance of active riding; good mechanical maintenance; use of correct tyre pressure; use of helmets; disallowing children to ride adult sized quad bikes; understanding the limitations of the vehicle; and that tragic incidents can occur in quite benign conditions’.
