As farmers gear up for the busy spring period MBIE has issued a warning about the risks of quad bikes, noting that the typical annual toll on New Zealand farms is five fatalities and 850 injuries from quad bike incidents.

Lesley Haines, Labour Group Deputy Chief Executive, says MBIE inspectors will be visiting farms and will challenge dangerous behaviour.

"We will consider prosecution following cases of serious injury or fatality if the basic safety steps have not been taken."
