The significance level was considered in all statistical tests Results: In the time span of the study, cases of motorcycle accident occurred, most of which happened at 8pm to 12pm. Motorcycle injuries constitute a major but neglected emerging public health problem in developing countries and contribute significantly to the overall road traffic injuries.

The aims of this work were to study the attitudes and practices of the motorcyclists regarding training and safety measures, and to determine some underlying factors of motorcycle by: 3. Motorcyclists' attitudes to some road safety countermeasures.

This paper is a condensed version of part of a larger study conducted in It examines the attitudes of a sample of 74 Victorian motorcyclists to a number of countermeasures available to them.

The attitudes are discussed in terms of the motorcyclists' subjective responses to the Author: M Wardle. Motorcyclists' accident risk: results from a new survey. A sample of 28, registered keepers of privately owned motorcycles were selected at random from the Survey of motorcyclists attitudes to selected accident counter-measures.

Respondents filled in 26 general and motorcycle-related items and the 24 items of the reduced Driver Behaviour. Abstract This study aims at identifying determinants of motorcyclists’s attitudes and analysing their influences on the occurrence of traffic accidents and offences.

A self-reported questionnaire survey was distributed in year among a representative sample of motorcyclists in Denpasar, Bali. Motorcycling is generally recognized as a relatively risky activity, but surprisingly little is known about motorcyclists' perception of this risk.

This paper presents a survey of motorcyclists' perceived likelihood of being involved in an accident and a statistical. economic factors, the use of motorcycle and riding history, learning method and experience on riding motorcycles, motorcyclist attitudes and involvement in traffic accidents and offences.

The results show that age and education level influenced learning method and experiences variables while gender did on motorcyclists’ attitude. In addition. Statistics from the UK suggest such attitudes have some basis; motorcyclists are over represented in accident statistics compared to their exposure on the road.

For example, motorcyclists make up 1% of road users, yet account for 19% of fatalities, 21% of total serious injuries and 8% of slight injuries on the road (DfT, ).

For example, a motorcyclist who had the experience of having the front wheel lock during braking may tend to overestimate the likelihood or frequency of front-wheel lock causing an accident.

A book by Kahneman, Slovic, and Tversky () and research by Tversky and Kahneman () show that this source of bias is potentially severe because. The riders and their motorcycles: (a) Riders 63% of injured casualties were in the age group years. With no data currently available in the UK on age distribution of motorcycle usage, it is not possible to say whether this accident peak is due to inexperience or simply reflects the age pattern of motorcyclists.

The current study presents results of a telephone survey of motorcyclists. The weighted sample was intended to result in a nationally representative sample of motorcyclists.

Motorcyclists comprise a diverse group in terms of travel patterns and attitudes. Recreation is the top reason people cite for riding motorcycles, according to MIC (   1.

Introduction. Road traffic collisions on Vietnam's roads claim five times more lives now than they did 10 years ago. In a total of 20, crashes were reported, leading to 12, deaths hospitalizations, while these figures in wererespectively ().Motorcycles are the most popular means of transport in Vietnam with 95% of registered motor.

Introduction. All around the world, one of the prominent external causes of morbidity and mortality, regardless of income or geographic area, is injury [1, 2].About 12% of disease relates to injuries worldwide [].The mortality rate of RTIs in the Eastern Mediterranean region is perbut in the European region the corresponding value is pera survey of motorcycle accidents This survey looks at a sample of injured motorcyclists involved in accidents over a period of one year ().

A comparison of several aspects of the accident situation between the sample and national accident data indicated that the detailed information gained from the survey is representative of.

motorcycle accidents were three times more common when the rider was under 20 years of age. Other studies have found that if the rider is young and male, the chance of being involved in an accident increases (Lin, Chang, Pai, & Keyl, ).

However, the age question cannot be based solely on the increased risk associated with being young. Riding off-road motorcycles smaller than cc was the most common type of motorcycle usage in the last 30 days, while riding off-road motorcycles cc or larger was the least common.

Road motorcycles, both large and small were slightly behind small off-road motorcycles in terms of usage. Source: Exhibits through 3.

According to a Media Audit survey, the majority of motorcycle owners are married, an average age of 41 years, and make higher than the average annual income (“Motorcycle Culture”).

Takeaways. Motorcyclists are at high risk of injury because riding a motorcycle is inherently riskier than a car. Helmets decrease injuries. Analysis evidenced avery frequent identification of motorcycle accident as a work-related event. Work-related events may be due to commuting to work, depending on the use of motorcycles as a fast-moving means in big cities' road traffic 4, The National Health Survey identified that 30% of accidents were due to commuting to work   This paper includes review of the trends, selected underlying, determinants and status intervention.

The National Survey of Bicyclist and Pedestrian Attitudes and Behavior is the second survey on this topic conducted for the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA).

Data collection was conducted by Abt SRBI, Inc, a national research organization. The survey utilized an overlapping dual frame (landline and cell) sample design and. This paper will cover the problem motorcycle accidents present to the military, discuss some of the safety practices currently in place to reduce deaths related to motorcycle accidents, and make recommendations to help reduce motorcycle accident deaths.

Problem Motorcycle related deaths have a large impact on the U.S. military. The rate of motorcycle related fatalities (n = ) and serious injuries (n = 5, ) in Texas continues to be one of the highest in the United States (n = 4, ).

Only Florida and California are worse. In in Texas, 52% of the motorcyclists killed. However, overall attitude of the respondents towards safety protective device was poor (% have poor attitude) as majority of them (%) were not willing to buy and wear safety protective devices with their money and also % of the respondents mentioned that the use of safety protective devices among commercial motorcyclists should not.

The motorcycle accident severity prediction system developed could serve as a tool that can be used to cub the enormous challenges faced by FRSC in curtailing motorcycle accident. View Show abstract.For the program, NHTSA studies behaviors and attitudes in highway safety, focusing on drivers, passengers, pedestrians, and motorcyclists.

NHTSA identifies and measures behaviors involved in crashes or associated with injuries, and develop and refine countermeasures to deter unsafe behaviors and promote safe alternatives.

For motorcycle riders, people in "cages" — those driving cars and trucks — bear a disproportionate share of the blame for the high number of motorcycle crashes on South Florida roads.
