This paper reviews the remarkable increases in motorcycle registrations, accidents, injuries and fatalities in North America over the last ten years. An attempt is made to determine the underlying causes of these accidents by reviewing available literature. There would appear to be general agreement by authorities in the field of motorcycle safety that the problems are amenable to corrective action. On the basis of cost-effectiveness, training and education rate highly as prime countermeasures. The development of the Canadian National Motorcycle Training Program under the auspices of the Canada Safety Council is described, and the methods and techniques are discussed. /HSRI/
