Carting, most basic and arguably the safest introduction to motorsports, is very popular not only in Europe and North America, the traditional bastions of auto racing but also in Asia and some parts of Africa. But, its popularity and fanfare should not undermine the fears about its safety.

Despite the technologically advanced safety measures, the inherent danger of high-speed auto racing refuses to be conquered. There are a large number of accessories for auto racing safety. But, there is no better method to avoid accidents than driving with concentration and focus.

He died on the track in 1994 following an accident while racing. That incident prompted the governing bodies of the sport to bring in new technologies to avoid accidents and to reduce the risks when accidents inevitably happen. The vehicles, be it racing cars or motorcycles, are designed in such a way as to keep the driver away from impact even if a crash happens. The vehicles absorb maximum impact on their body. But there is a limit to such measures. If the crash is too powerful, the body cannot resist the force. As a result, other accessories for auto racing safety have been introduced.
