Recent State Government programs to provide ATV owners in NSW and Victoria with safety rebates for rollover protection or subsidies for replacement of un protected vehicles to newer and safer side by side models have been well received.
But South Australian ATV riders have not received similar offers from its State Government placing riders at greater risk of injury in that State.
Local rural member for Stuart Dan Van holst Pellekkan told Flow FM that he had written to the Attorney General John Rau about a similar program for South Australians.
To date Mr Rau is yet to comment or take up consumers request for a subsidy program on ATV safety in SA.
Riders across regions are reminded to use caution and take care as many more ATV’s will be out and about through harvest and the Holiday season.
