Quad bike fatalities data

See an up-to-date estimate of people killed in incidents involving quad bikes in Australia from 2017 to 2023.  

This data includes information on quad bike related fatalities in Australia, excluding fatalities occurring from other similar 4 wheeled vehicles such as side-by-side vehicles (SSVs). 

Data is collected preliminarily from media reports, states and territories, and other publicly available information. We also review quad bike fatalities in Safe Work Australia’s Traumatic Injury Fatalities (TIF) database.  

Note: The interactive dashboards employ suppression techniques for small values in the interest of confidentiality concerns. This may cause some data to not be published in the charts.
