Road rash is a colloquial term for skin injury caused by abrasion with road surfaces, usually as a consequence of longboarding, cycling and motorcycling accidents. The term may be applied to both a fresh injury and the scar tissue left by an old one. The term is sometimes applied to longboarding, skateboarding, and roller skating abrasion accidents, especially those caused at high speeds (as in longboarding). Symptoms may include pain and heavy bleeding.
