The genuine threat of quicksand on parts of Tasmania's west coast is invisible and deadly and in one case trapped an entire convoy of cavalier four-wheel drivers when they disregarded warnings from locals of the danger.
I've started this part of the forum to put together all of the information we have around some of the accidents that occur when people head out offroad. The whole point of this is not to make fun of those unfortunately enough to be unlikely, make a mistake or even being a bit stupid. We have all taken risks that we shouldn't have and some people end up in trouble because they just didn't know. 4WD Accidents is to help educate everyone and in particular newbies on how to increases their chances of heading out offroad, having an awesome time and coming back safe and sound.
