There has been a lot of discussion lately about the introduction of compulsory wearing of full gear. I would have thought it would be the policy of most organisations employing people to ride to have some kind of full gear rules to reduce workers compensation claims, time of work if crashed, etc. To get to my point, I've seen a few police bikes around recently and all the riders were wearing standard uniforms (with helmet and gloves of course). I thought it odd that the police are wearing short sleeved shirts, when they should be setting an example for the rest of us. Does anyone have any insight into this? It would be interesting if some police reprimand riders they have pulled over the lack of full gear, when those in their own organisation who ride bikes are not required to.
