TitleComparative study of motorcycle accidents
AuthorsMcLean AJ, Chen PCY, Wong TW, Ukai T
Year1990
TypeReport
AbstractA co-ordinated study of motorcycle accidents during 1986 and 1987 was carried out in Adelaide (South Australia), Kuala Lumpur (Malaysia), Singapore, and Suita (Japan). The object was to investigate the effect of licensing requirements for motorcyclists on the risk of serious injury in the first year of riding compared to subsequent years. Riders operating on a learner's permit were found to have the highest risk of injury followed by those in their first year of riding. It was clear that more effective training procedures for motorcyclists should be developed.
