That sort of thing should be shown to all new riders, maybe part of the CBT.
I can still remember seeing a guy in the 70's come off his bike wearing shorts, tee shirt and would you believe it slippers. He came around a corner hit some gravel lost it and narrowly missed me riding my push bike. he managed to get the worst grazes I have ever seen on both sides legs, arms, hands and assorted body parts. He was very lucky no broken bones but I bet the gazes took longer to heal and left more scring than broken bones.
At work I have to wear minimum PPE (personal protective equipement). I think the compulsory wearing a minimum of proper jacket, proper trousers, proper gloves and boots would be more appropriate than wearing a high viz jacket on a bike. As I understand the new Euro law, they are insisting bikers wearing a high viz jackets, so I guess wearing shorts and a tee shirt and high viz would be ok. :hitler::hitler:
