TAC Campaign in Favor of Wearing Protective Gear Extended in 2013

According to some studies and statistics, it appears like the motorcycle riders have no less than 38 times the risks of death or serious injuries occurring in traffic accidents, and this figure is independent of who's to blame for the event. That's why Australia's TAC (Transport Accidents Commision) has extended their campaign for wearing protective riding gear when on the motorcycle in through the years 2013.
While not being mandatory, wearing protective clothing helps reducing these risks. TAC's independent studies have been consistent with similar researches throughout the world: we (riders) often underestimate the risks we're prone to when on the road and our vulnerability. Even in the case of minor crashes, a jacket and similar protective gear can help reduce the injuries which can otherwise be quite extensive, despite not speeding.

Spring is yet a good distance ahead, so maybe it would be a great idea to review the gear for the next season, resize the beer allowance and get some new stuff.
