European motorcycle body publishes protective equipment guide
ACEM, the professional body that represents the motorcycle industry in Europe, has published a booklet in seven languages to encourage the wider use of protective clothing.
ACEM represents the interests of 12 powered two wheeler manufacturers and 15 national associations.
The booklet has been developed as part of eSUM (European Safer Urban Motorcycling), a partnership project between ACEM and the four European motorcycling capitals (London, Paris, Barcelona and Rome) to promote the safer use of powered two-wheelers in inner-city traffic.
While most riders use helmets, moped riders and commuters tend to neglect the benefits of PPE. For example, in Mediterranean countries (due to the warm climate) PTW users are still largely unaware that good apparel can combine comfort and safety.
Jacques Compagne, ACEM secretary general, said: "The PTW industry wants to inform riders about the benefits of PPE and aims to encourage more of them to wear appropriate gear.”
