Quad bikes or All-Terrain Vehicles (ATVs) continue to be a leading cause of serious injuries and fatalities for many countries. Of particular concern are fatalities related to quad bike use on roads. This paper is aimed to identify features of quad bikes that make them dangerous for on-road use. The study demonstrated that the static stability and dynamic handling attributes of a quad bike make them unsuitable and unsafe for on-road use.
