Researchers who interviewed eight farmers found they tended to believe they were less likely to have a quad bike incident than other farmers.

Stuff reports an Otago University study published in the Australian and New Zealand Journal of Public Health, which found farmers' risk perception around quad bikes was influenced by four factors:

  • previous incidents;
  • familiarity;
  • job priority; and
  • personal attributes such as their age.
