Motorcyclists

ARSC conference 2018

The rate at which motorcyclists are being killed or seriously injured on Western Australian roads is growing. To better understand how the safety of motorcyclists can be supported, RAC conducted a survey of Western Australian drivers and motorcyclists, which was exploratory in nature with the overall aim of understanding usage, riding behavior, attitude and perceptions of road users about motorcycling behavior and challenges. As well as showing that there are differences related to rider age, type of vehicle and usage, the survey results identified a number of initiatives which could improve the safety of motorcyclists.
