A Mayo Fianna Fail TD will launch a new Bill to improve safety on all-terrain vehicles, also known as Quad Bikes.

 

Dara Calleary says there are currently no legal rules in place requiring manufacturers or farmers to have roll cages on their quads.

 

There are also no health and safety rules requiring the mandatory use of protective headgear.

 

Deputy Calleary is bringing forward the Bill following a recent recommendation from the County Coroner in Mayo that anti-roll bars be made compulsory in all quad bikes.

 

The All-Terrain Vehicle Safety Bill 2018 will make it mandatory for quad bikes to have anti-roll bars and for users to wear protective headgear.
