Australian farmers will soon have access to information which compares the stability of different makes and models of quad bikes.
The move follows a spate of fatalities on Australian farms; 30 people have died in quad bike crashes in the past 18 months, making them even more dangerous than tractors, the ABC reports.
A University of New South Wales team is testing the stability of 16 different models and will develop a safety star rating system to help farmers work out whether they're using the safest tool for the job.
The new system will be rolled out next year.
Five people are a year on average are killed in quad bike accidents on New Zealand farms.
