Is food vegan simply because it doesn’t come from a cow? This question has puzzled one in five Britons.
Rider training is overlooked in recent moves by the Worksafe and the ACC to address quad crashes and injuries, says Motor Industry Association chief executive David Crawford.
Regardless of the debate about quads versus side x sides, two-wheelers remain crucial to many livestock farmers.
It makes grim reading to see that agricultural deaths have numbered 124 over the last seven years – about four times higher than in construction or forestry.
Not many weeks pass when quad crashes don’t make the news here or in Australia; for example, the first weekend in March saw two fatalities and a serious injury in NSW.
While quad fatalities keep fuelling a media frenzy, it’s time to look at the broader picture and try to understand what makes our farms such dangerous places.
