  1. I am not sure what the Federal government could do about the quad bike situation other that legislate for stupidity and hell knows, we have already done plenty of that – but to no avail. At what point is the rider responsible for their own actions? At what point should an adult be held legally responsible for the actions of junior riders they are supposed to supervise. Now, there is no doubt that “risk taking” can be fun but how far any risk should be taken is a learned experience and I freely acknowledge that sometimes bad things happen to nice people despite best plan. However, unlike rats, humans fail to learn.
