Crashes, what can be done?

I could do one better that could honestly fix this whole mixup. Rewatching some old World Cup matches and David Beckham’s goal that shook the world against Greece. Anyways. Crazily enough. Five years later at the World Cup again. Zinedine Zidane decides to viciously headbutt Marco Materazzi in the chest. Materazzi crumpled to the ground. Unfortunately Materazzi did not have an airbag vest to deploy to protect his collarbone. Thankfully no collarbone injury occurred and in the face of Materazzi’s bravery. A red flag was awarded. And Materazzi would later walk away after despite the threat of an injury occurring. A true hero.

So as we can all concur, an airbag vest is not vital in every sport.

I see what you did there. ;)
As long as they don't use tractors. My uncle was run over by one as a child and hasn't been able to walk properly since, because the bones didn't heal correctly. But at least his collarbone wasn't permanently damaged.
And let's be honest: collarbones are more of a nuisance during injury recovery. Let's add a hinged, breakaway version so riders can reset it more quickly and get back into the sprint. If you're a pro, you know what I'm talking about.

Just add one more seat for a GT.......the flag is ideal for the team sponsor
