As part of a Texas Department of Transportation grant, TTI created the “I’m a Biker & I Wear My Gear” video.
When you don’t wear your gear you are:
- 91 percent more likely to lose skin on the road during a crash;
- At a greater risk for spending a long time in the hospital;
- 40 percent more likely to sustain permanent disabilities from crash-related injuries; and
- 37 percent more likely to die.
Whenever you ride, gear up. Wear your gear. Wear all of it. Every time you ride.
Gear up, Texas.
