MOTORCYCLISTS' ATTITUDES TOWARDS AND WILL TO PARTICIPATE IN EXTENSION COURSES

MC-FOERERAS INSTAELLNING OCH VILJA TILL ATT DELTA I FORTBILDNINGSKURSER

The survey studies motorcyclists' will to participate in extension courses and the influence exerted by participant fees or compensation. A second aim is to see if there is any difference between different categories of motorcyclists with regard to sex, age, accident experience, etc. The survey was carried out by means of questionnaires sent to 662 randomly chosen owners of heavy motorcycles, aged 18-25 years. Besides a general description of background data for the studied group such as sex, age, and driving experience etc., the results show a positive attitude towards extension courses among motorcyclists. The intention of participating in a future course is high if the course is free of charge or if compensation is offered to the participants. If, on the contrary, the course is subject to a charge the proportion of interested persons rapidly decreases with increasing fee. The kind of compensation to participants considered most attractive is a reduction of the motorcycle insurance.
