Little Legends lead the way

RAC’s Community Education team would like to introduce you to some of our friends from the RAC Little Legends Club – a fun, free road safety membership for children. The Little Legends love to help us spread the word about being a safe road user. We sat down with Mel and Jack to talk about road safety.

Quad Bikes are big, heavy and unstable.

Their high centre of gravity, especially when combined with a load strapped to the back, can result in the vehicle rolling over. According to Safe Work Australia, this has caused nine deaths since 1 January 2015.

This calendar year of 2015 there have been 15 quad bike fatalities across Australia. One in Northern Territory, two each in New South Wales and Tasmania and three each in Western Australia and Victoria and four in Queensland.
