The latest version of the award winning medical alert for motorcyclists (CRASH card) will soon be availiable to riders in the east of England and London. Road safety teams and Ambulance Services from Bedfordshire, Cambridgeshire, Essex, Hertfordshire, Norfolk and Suffolk together with Bikesafe London were invited to join the Ambulance Motorcycle Club and sponsors Spada at the Ace London on 11th December, to celebrate thousands of cards being made available.

Essex Paramedic Ian Burrell General Secretary of the Ambulance Motorcycle Club said "CRASH Card has already helped improve the treatment of injured riders here in the UK and USA where it is known as Rider Alert. We are thrilled that the Spada are supporting the programme directly in the East of England and London. Spada have already helped thousands of riders stay safer on the road this year by including a CRASH Card with every piece of clothing they manufacture." Demand for the CRASH Card remains high. The club gets many enquiries a week for cards through the website "A list of outlets supporting the programme are on the site, some with collection in person, others offering a free postal service. " said Tony Mock Club Membership Secretary  Riders will also be able to collect a CRASH card for free at any of their local road safety team events and shows in the coming season.

Also CRASH Cards are being made available through the receptions of the East of England Ambulance Service and by attending a Bikesafe day held by the Metropolitan Police. For more information about CRASH Card please visit
