Saw an article on airbags being designed for internal and external fit to jackets being run out by a few manufacturers on the Beeb this morning. Apparently it is the A&E departments from around the country suggesting that these should be made compulsary. Now I don't do bikes as because my mother spend 20 years teaching the vegetables that were ex-bikers involved in serious accidents in and around Edinburgh, I got a somewhat emotive tirade when I announced I was thinking of getting my licence. I was taken along to help her out and so I know better than most what can happen to the poor sods if you come off badly. This is one of the designs being run out. Knowing that most accidents to bikers involve another vehicle, my view is that anything proven to give more protection should be viewed positively. Thoughts?
