Inflatable JacketsThose jackets and vests with the built-in CO2 cartridges that inflates like an airbag, actually saved a biker's life last month.

This according to WBAL TV 11 in Baltimore, MD...
Joseph McPhatter, of Randallstown, was injured in a crash on Interstate 83 after being cut off by another motorist in September. According to police, McPhatter was ejected 100 feet, hitting the ground at an impact rate of 140 mph.

Police said that McPhatter might have been severely injured had it not been for the Impact Jacket he was wearing -- a jacket that inflates like an air bag when a motorcyclist is in an wreck.
After bouncing around like a beach ball, McPhatter came to a rest with some sore ribs and knees. but otherwise unharmed.

Officials said McPhatter's crash was the first real incident in the U.S. where the inflatable jacket spared someone's life.

So how long will it take before the first State adopts a mandatory inflatable jacket law?
