USER ISSUES IN MOTORCYCLE SAFETY

The revitalised growth in motorcycle use throughout the world has been stimulated by fuel shortages, by the leisure aspects of motorised sport, by increasing city congestion, and by the increasingly rapid decline of public transport service levels. Official attention to the consequences and causes of this growth has been attracted mainly by the negative aspect of rising gross casualty figures, and has yet to be balanced by an equal amount of effort to appraise economic, resource utilisation, and mobility factors to form a balanced policy. This paper outlines a wider content for the appraisal of motorcycle safety by taking a systems standpoint to identify area of information lack and to trace some of these through from the viewpoint of the motorcycle user /TRRL/
