For sun, fun and alcohol, the boozy Brit holiday abroad is a popular type for tourists to let their hair down and mess around. However, mixing alcohol with most activities especially in hot weather can cause a bad travel accident.
One popular activity Brits enjoy abroad is quad biking. This is a great way to explore your surroundings whilst feeling the wind in your face. However, if you are thinking of drinking and quad biking at the same time, think again unless you want to sustain a painful travel accident injury.
Quad bikes and travel accidents
Quad biking whilst sober still has risks and the chances of you having an accident abroad is still high. This is because it is quite easy to fall off one, or for the vehicle to flip if moving at high speed. However, add alcohol to this mixture and the combination is deadly and could mean a lot worse than just a small travel accident.
How to make quad biking safe?
The main thing is to make sure you are fully sober when you are carrying out this activity to help prevent a travel accident. If you still have alcohol inside you this will impair your senses and make it easier to crash as your reflexes will be slower.
As well as this, make sure you are wearing any safety equipment they provide and cover your legs and arms. This will mean that if you do have a travel accident you will not scrape all your skin off the exposed areas.
