Stop blight of ‘dangerous and anti-social’ quad bikes on our streets, Yorkshire MP says

Judith Cummins warned quad bikes “are tools, not toys and their careless, reckless and unsafe use on our streets is a menace”.
The MP for Bradford South set out a series of measures which she said would “provide consistency, to protect road users and legitimate owners of quads and to stop the blight of their dangerous and anti-social use on our streets”.

Ms Cummins told MPs: “This Bill will promote safe use of road-legal quads and reduce the number of off-road quads on our streets by making wearing of helmets compulsory, making necessary the installation of vehicle immobilisers, making registration of all quad bikes compulsory, empowering police to remove problem off-road quads from our streets permanently.”

She added: “The constant loud, piercing drone of quad bikes is an all too familiar sound in many of our towns and cities.

“While these vehicles have important and legitimate uses in agriculture and related industries, they are tools, not toys and their careless, reckless and unsafe use on our streets is a menace and my constituents have had enough.”
