Prioritized Recommendations of the National Agenda for Motorcycle Safety

The National Agenda for Motorcycle Safety (NAMS) is a comprehensive plan to improve United States motorcycle safety in the 21st century. The NAMS was developed by a technical working group of experts representing all constituencies involved in motorcycle safety, led by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) and the Motorcycle Safety Foundation (MSF), and published in November 2000. On September 11, 2007, the National Transportation Safety Board (NTSB) held a public meeting on motorcycle safety. Following the meeting, NTSB issued a recommendation to reprioritize the NAMS recommendations based on objective criteria, including known safety outcomes. This document addresses that reprioritization. It contains two sections. The Methods section defines three important characteristics of each recommendation, describes how the recommendations are classified according to each of these characteristics, and outlines the overall method used in establishing priorities. The Priorities section lists the highest priority recommendations.
