In the UK there are up to 7,000 serious motorcycle accidents each year. It's a depressing thought.

The hour after the accident is critical as to how well a biker will recover, but there is something simple that you can do to help yourself, just carry the following information:

  • Any current medication
  • Any relevant illnesses, including allergies
  • Any ongoing disability(-ies) suffered
  • Language spoken
  • Emergency contacts

The Sheffield Advanced Motorcyclists (SAM) have written about the advantages and disadvantages of different methods you can use. From a simple piece of paper to a scannable QR sticker, a biker can help emergency service staff to ensure the treatment given won't harm the casualty and who the biker wants contacted.

If you carry ICE then encourage your biking mates to do the same. After all the life you are helping to save could be yourself or your best riding buddy.
