Rules to play Quad Biking
Where a quad bike operator undertakes a task (such as spraying or mustering) while
operating a quad bike, their skill level needs to be higher than that required for simple
riding. Multi tasking increases risk because the operator may focus on the task rather
than operating the vehicle.
Mustering provides a good example of this. Quad bike operators focus on the
livestock rather than the ground they are riding over and may not be aware of
unexpected surface changes or obstacles.
To increase your safety when mustering or performing other multi tasking activities,
maintain slow speed and seek a path over the terrain that provides the best visibility
of any potential obstruction or hazard.
