Driving Protection Gear Market by Product Type (Helmet, Armor, Gloves, Knee Protection, Others), Material Type, Vehicle Type, Consumer Group, Distribution Channel, Region, Global Industry Analysis, Market Size, Share, Growth, Trends, and Forecast 2019 to 2026

/EIN News/ — New Jersey, NJ, Sept. 25, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Increase in threat of diseases in livestock and growing preference towards meat and dairy products are two major driving forces of the market. The global driving protection gear market is expected to grow from USD 8.23 Billion in 2018 to USD 12.34 Billion by 2026 at a CAGR of 5.2% during the forecast period 2019-2026, according to the new report published by Fior Markets.

Driving protection gears are accessories and equipment which aim to protect the people from harm while driving. Protective clothing may include certain types of jackets, gloves, boots, and pants. The increasing rate of accidents and mishaps has led to improving driving safety due to which the government has made it mandatory to wear personal protective equipment such as protective clothing and helmets. Additionally, functional refurbishments including weather resistance besides optimal safety are also generating the need for such accessories.

Growing concerns regarding road safety is a major factor driving the market. In addition, rising motorsports popularity and increasing demand for superbikes across the world has also influenced the demand. However, severe competition for driving apparels from the unorganized sector is restraining the growth of the market. Nevertheless, innovations and advancements in the manufacturing processes to obtain protection gears utilizing innovative technologies are expected to drive the growth of the market in forthcoming years.

A near fatal accident didn’t stop Natalie from getting back on the open road.

When she was young, Natalie yearned to one day have her own motorcycle. She made her dream a reality when she purchased her own Yamaha, and could finally experience the thrill of riding solo and getting involved in the local motorcycle community.

Things took a turn for the worse and she was involved in a near fatal accident that left her dreams – and bones – broken. Natalie was told that she wouldn’t be able to walk for up to a year. Five surgeries, organs removed, and one titanium pelvis later, Natalie’s passion for riding drove her to get back up again. Three months after her accident, she was back on wheels– and not the wheelchair kind.

One of the things that helped Natalie stay positive throughout her traumatic ordeal was the Tonit community that would be there to welcome her return to the road.

For motorcyclists riding in groups or flying solo, no resource offers a more authentic way to connect with other passionate riders than the Tonit app.

Utah Legalizes Lane Splitting

By | General Posts

from rideapart.com

Governor Gary Herbert signed H.B. 149 into law Thursday, making Utah the second state to permit the practice.

Update: Imprecise language to discuss the contents of this bill was used. The Utah bill clearly states that “lane filtering” is now legal, however, we referred to it as “lane splitting”, which is often colloquially used to describe both. We have clarified the information and changed the article to reflect the subtleties between both terminologies, and we apologize for the mistake. – SG

On Thursday, the number of states to take motorcycle safety measures doubled to two, as Governor Gary Herbert signed H.B. 149, legalizing lane filtering in the great state of Utah.

Only 48 U.S. states, Canada, and a few other countries prohibit motorcycles from traveling between lanes of cars in slow or stopped traffic. It’s common and expected practice throughout Europe and Asia. As long as cars are expecting it and everyone involved does it safely, it’s not only faster for bikes to cut through traffic, but safer, too. Bikes can safely make their way to the front of the line, rather than be stuck in the back where an inattentive driver could crash into them from behind.

Of course, since this is a motorcycle safety bill, it’s not about doing a wheelie between cars at 100 mph. The law stipulates certain conditions under which lane filtering is allowed. The road must have two or more lanes with a speed limit no greater than 45 mph, which unfortunately rules out interstates. Additionally, traffic must be completely stopped, and the motorcycle may not exceed 15 mph while navigating between lanes (unlike lane splitting that allows motorcycles to cruise in-between lanes while traffic is in motion). It’s not exactly the Wild West of California’s lane splitting laws (or lack of laws, to be precise), but it’s still a tremendous advantage for motorcyclists in Utah.

We kind of saw this coming, but personally, I never expected to see any other states actually pass such a law, even though I hoped for it. Connecticut, Oregon, and Maryland have also proposed laws that would legalize the practice. The only issue that I see with legal lane filtering is that drivers aren’t used to bikes cutting between them, and especially having the legal privilege to do so. Wherever lane splitting or filtering is legalized, I think a massive publicity campaign will be necessary to educate drivers not to get angry, intentionally block, or throw things at riders following the new laws.
