Ride ready – new quad bike safety campaign









The Queensland Government has launched the Ride ready campaign – to keep quad bike riders safe.

Quad bikes are the biggest killer on Australian farms, claiming 230 lives in the last 15 years.

In Queensland more than 70 people have lost their lives and thousands more injured while using quad bikes.

The Ride ready campaign includes advertising, quad bike safety films, resources and a rider challenge.
