CRASH card launched in Gloucestershire
A card containing vital personal information, which could prove invaluable if a motorcyclist is involved in a collision, has been launched in Gloucestershire.
The CRASH card is the size of a credit card and fits inside a rider’s helmet. It provides personal details to help ambulance crews, saving valuable time and helping treatment, especially if a rider is unconscious or unable to communicate.
A self-adhesive green dot stuck to the helmet alerts paramedics to look out for the card.
Chris Harrison, Gloucestershire road safety partnership’s motorcycle coordinator, said: “The CRASH card is designed to save precious time in the minutes following a serious collision and improve medical care received at the roadside.
“All bikers are encouraged to carry the card, which also gives helpful advice if a rider comes across a road traffic collision so that they can relay important information when dialling 999.”
