ATV safety: Australia requests changes

We all know ATVs can be dangerous. Farm safety advocates in Australia are calling for some substantial changes to ATV laws in Australia.

After a conference, the farm safety movement in Australia is requesting:

-Mandatory roll over protection on ATVs
-Stopping new sales of child sized ATVs
-Barring children under the age of 16 from riding and designing them so it’s not possible
-Barring passengers and designing them so it’s not possible
-Purchase cost of ATVs to include safety equipment

What do you think about these suggestions for Australia? Let us know in the comments.

    Well, I guess the requested changes are good enough. The main purpose is for our own safety and that we should need to pay more attention for it.
