REGIONAL COMPARATIVE STUDY OF MOTORCYCLE ACCIDENTS WITH SPECIAL REFERENCE TO LICENSING REQUIREMENTS

This publication describes a co-ordinated study of motorcyle accidents during 1986 and 1987 carried out in Adelaide (South Australia), Kuala Lumpur (Malaysia), Singapore, and Suita (Japan). The object was to investigate the effect of licensing requirements for motorcyclists on the risk of serious injury in the first year of riding compared to subsequent years. Riders operating on a learner's permit were found to have the highest risk of injury followed by those in their first year of riding. It was clear that more effective training procedures for motorcycles should be developed.
