Parents warned of the dangers of quad bikes

Concerns are being raised after a video of a toddler crashing a scrambler went viral over Christmas.

It’s unclear where or when the footage was recorded, but a small child with a soother in his mouth is seen crashing at full speed into a lamp post.

Gardai have been working to clamp down on scramblers this Christmas, but without legislation, they are restricted in what they can do.

Leitrim Sinn Fein Councillor, Padraig Fallon says parents have to be careful when it comes to allowing children access to such vehicles
