In the various member countries of the European Experimental Vehicles Committee (EEVC) it was concluded that since 1972 a lot of attention had been paid to problems related to accidents with cars; in recent years attention moved to other traffic participants. EEVC working group 8 was set up as a result of the growing importance of traffic safety problems for the users of two-wheelers. In this report priorities are set and recommendations are presented. The report includes the following chapters: description of two-wheeler accident statistics; detailed description of bicycle and light-powered two-wheeler accidents; injury influencing parameters; research methods and results; current knowledge on human tolerance; injury prevention measures for bicyclists and riders of light-powered two-wheelers; test procedures; and accident prevention.
