What are the risks of inline skating?
Falling down is the single biggest risk for inline skaters. For this reason you should always wear your inline skate protective gear. You should also be aware that being struck by an automobile or other moving vehicles (motorcycles, bicycles, etc) is a serious risk for inline skaters. In a perfect scenario inline skaters (beginners and advanced) would spend most of their time inline skating in places void of automobile traffic. Unfortunately, we know that this is not always feasible or practical. When you cannot avoid inline skating near traffic, stay alert and always exercise extreme caution.
