National Agenda for Motorcycle Safety Implementation Guide

The National Agenda for Motorcycle Safety (NAMS) is a comprehensive plan to improve United States motorcycle safety in the 21st century. It was published in November 2000 and contained 82 individual recommendations to address the full range of topics and strategies relevant to motorcycle safety: human, vehicle, environmental, and social factors to prevent crashes, reduce injuries in crashes, and care for people injured in crashes. About half of the NAMS recommendations are directed to States and communities. These NAMS recommendations provide overall goals and general methods for achieving these goals but do not suggest specific action steps. This guide attempts to fill this gap. Its purpose is to help State and community organizations improve motorcycle safety by implementing relevant NAMS recommendations. The guide is divided into seven chapters, as follows: 1. Alcohol and other drugs; 2. Personal protective equipment; 3. Motorcycle operator training and education; 4. Licensing; 5. Motorist education; 6. Highway and environment; 7. Management.
