STUDY OF THE SAFETY OF MOPEDS

ETUDE SUR LA SECURITE DES CYCLOMOTEURS

This report summarizes the main investigations carried out in France and other countries on two-wheeled vehicles. The first part gives statistical data and indices for comparing the two-wheeled vehicle situation in most industrial countries. Part 2 reviews accidents in which two-wheeled vehicles are involved. Conclusions are drawn concerning the involvement of young cyclists and motorcycle accidents. The attraction of motorcycles is examined. The steps to be taken are outlined: teaching of road safety in schools, education of road users, ergonomic measures (vehicle modification, construction of tracks for two-wheeled vehicles only). /TRRL/
