bike·protect prevents injuries to motorcyclists and saves millions of euros in consequential costs of accidents
As soon as the motorcycle season starts, the first reports of seriously injured and killed motorcyclists begin to come in. Many of these motorcyclists injure themselves seriously or are even killed by striking guard rails. In addition to the human suffering, this causes high consequential costs for the general public. With the bike·protect guard rail system from Asamer Rubber Technology GmbH (a subsidiary of the Asamer group), many injuries can be avoided, in particular those to motorcyclists, as well as up to 30% of consequential costs of accidents, which amounts to approximately 300 million euros. With the support of the state of Upper Austria, several dangerous curves on much-loved Upper Austrian motorcycle routes are now being equipped with the system.
