39 people were killed or injured in crashes involving quadbikes or scramblers over a 4 year period.

Overall 4 people were killed between the years of 2014 and 2017, where at least one quad bike or scrambler is recorded.

The Road Safety Authority says around 75% of those who died were 18 or younger.

Meanwhile, 35 people were injured in an incident involving a quad bike or scrambler over the same period.

Both the RSA and Gardai are warning that children should not be given the vehicles as Christmas presents.

RSA Chief Executive Moyagh Murdock says it's important parents know the risks of giving them as gifts.

"If you’re planning to gift a quad bike or scrambler this Christmas, please reconsider. If it’s the thought that counts, please think again."
