They are still on sale ,I think the main concern is how some of them have been assembled by the retailers & the poor quality copies that pop up in some stores , dangerious brakes , steering ect.There has been prosicutions in the past against dept. stores that have assembled & sold bikes that were unsafe through poor assembaly.
We have an accident insurance scheme (ACC) that covers every person in the country, its funded by our taxes , a levy on our road vech.reg. fee & a levy on employers for every person they employ , the more dangerous the occupation ,the more they pay. ACC pays for our treatment ,medication & 80% of lost wages & insome cases monetary compensation.
