MOTORCYCLE SAFETY - A REVIEW OF INFORMATION GATHERED FROM OVERSEAS: JANUARY, 1978

This report collates the motorcycle safety aspects which came up during several days of an overseas study journey in January 1978, and is substantially extended by embodying in the text much of the material subsequently collected by or sent on to the author. The subjects covered include motorcycle dynamics, wet weather and antilock braking, accident analysis, education, training, licencing, legislation, motorcycle visibility, helmet performance, helmet and visor standards, U.S. Motorcycle and moped legislation, and moped issues. This approach has been adopted due to the scattered and inaccessible nature of many of the sources, and the consequent value of a reasonably broad and up-to-date coverage of the material and findings in context. The sections of this report concerned specifically with visors and helmets have already been drawn upon in connection with standards issues. /TRRL/
