Road safety; information on clothing and protective equipment

By selecting the right clothing and protective equipment - namely, clothing that is highly visible or that protects you in the event of an accident or fall - you can easily increase your safety.


Pedestrians, cyclists and motorcyclists, inline skaters and scooter riders, but also quad bikers are directly exposed to their accident opponent in the event of an accident. Improved visibility is therefore important.

Therefore, bright and conspicuous clothing, recommended with retroreflective materials, should be worn. Furthermore, you should make consistent use of existing protection options - such as helmets and protectors.

Further information on this subject can be found on the website of the Bavarian State Ministry of the Interior (see "Further links").
