Motorcyclists are provided free of charge with a card, which is place inside their helmet as a medical alert, details which the rider has written on the card provides vital information for attending ambulance crews or emergency responders if the motorcyclist is injured in a road traffic collision or unable to talk coherently because of concussion or having been knocked out.
To let those attending know about this vital information the rider places a sticker on the outside of the helmet, on the right hand side, indicating that a rider or pillion is carrying a safety card inside the lining of their helmet.
Our thanks to Howard for the acknowledgement and kind words in the latest edition of the BMF members Rider magazine.
Based on the article and comments on the BMF Facebook page we are certain that Howard and his colleagues at the BMF will move the Ride It Right project of the Biker NI Safety CRASH Cards forward for the benefit of all motorcyclists.
