AN ASSESSMENT OF MEASURES TO REDUCE CYCLIST AND MOTORCYCLIST ACCIDENT

Accidents involving cyclists and motorcyclists demonstrate many unique characteristics. Their machines are unsuited to a road-use system designed predominantly for other types of vehicles. Some preventive measures are proposed to reduce accidents where bicycles and motorcycles are involved: (1) for motorcycles, daytime usage of headlights and tail lights, pilot pre-road training scheme for motorcyclists, provision of anti-locking brakes, development of passive restraint systems; (2) for bicycles, controlled use of the footpath area.
