Quad Bike Owners Protest in Athens
« on: Wednesday, 28 March, 2018 @ 18:54:38 »
Dozens of of four-wheel motorbike owners drove through the centre of Athens on Wednesday to protest at a government decision to ban them from the roads.

The bikes, also known as all-terrain vehicles, ATVs, or quad-bikes, are popular among tourists on Crete, Zakynthos and other Greek islands, and are often seen as a safer option than motorbikes.

But new traffic code regulations would limit the use of ATVs, prompting fears among rental owners that they will lose their investment and go out of business.
