Improving motorcyclist safety: Priority actions for Safe System integration
Motorcycling is one of the most common modes of transport in the world. But the use of powered two-wheelers (PTWs) raises major safety issues for people, governments and road-safety authorities.
This Policy Brief summarises the current extent of PTW usage worldwide, highlights pressing safety issues for motorcyclists and presents priority actions for improving motorcycling safety.
It draws on a series of virtual workshops on motorcyclist safety co-hosted by the ITF, the Swedish Transport Administration (Trafikverket), the Swedish National Road and Transport Research Institute (VTI), the International Motorcycling Federation, the International Motorcycle Manufacturers’ Association and the European Association of Motorcycle Manufacturers.
