Police officers and firefighters arrive at the scene, where they find a scooter rider and his vehicle entangled in the chassis of a garbage truck. They proceed to get him out. At 3:39 a.m. on Oct. 30, this motorist was traveling along Xinguang Road in Kaohsiung City's Lingya District. He did not notice that there was a garbage truck in front of him that was turning right onto Ziqiang Third Road, and braked too late. He hit the truck and went under it.
I saw three or four scooters pass by, and then I only turned after I looked in the rearview mirror and didn't see lights or vehicles. I heard a grumbling noise, which was when the collision occurred.
The motorist collided with the garbage truck. He was wearing a helmet. He has been sent to a hospital. Both drivers took Breathalyzer tests and didn't test positive for alcohol. We're determining the cause of the accident.
The motorist was wearing a full face helmet, so his head was protected while he was stuck under the truck. He suffered abrasions to his hands and feet. Few scooter riders in Kaohsiung are currently wearing full face helmets due to the hot weather.
I did buy a full face helmet, but I was riding someone else's vehicle today so I wore a half face helmet. Full face helmets offer more protection.
I got into accidents when I first started riding scooters. I happened to be using a full face helmet at that time, so nothing happened to me.
Full face helmets offer more protection.
Full face helmets have a visor and protect the chin, so they are more protective than three-quarters or half face helmets. Some people believe full face helmets offer more protection, while others think they are more expensive and also more stifling.
