Building safer communities

Fianna Fáil believes that communities should not be at the mercy of dangerous and anti-social scrambler and quad bike use.

Between 2014 and 2017, 39 people lost their lives as a result of accidents on these machines. Three out of four of those deaths were young people under the age of 18.

Communities have been terrorised by teenagers riding their bikes in public parks, on the roads, and on green spaces.

While others have come up with alternative solutions, we believe that dealing with these issues under existing public order legislation is the best and most effective way of saving lives and ending the terror.

Fianna Fail’s plan to make our communities safer:

  1. More power to Gardaí

    Give Gardaí the power to seize and destroy illegally driven scrambler and quad bikes.

  2. Make it an offence

    Make anti-social and dangerous scrambler bike use an offence under the Public Order Act.

  3. Confiscation

    Enable Gardaí to confiscate illegally driven scrambler and quad bikes directly from the curtilage (e.g. gardens) of owners.

  4. Introduce fines

    Fine those, up to a max of €5000, who sell or supply scrambler and quad bikes to underage persons.

  5. A national register

    Establish a national register of all scrambler and quad bikes.
