The Human Factors Portion of the Motorcycle Dynamics and Handling Equation 780311
A systematic plan is being implemented which holds promise for reducing motorcycle accidents and injuries through motorcycle operator education and licensing improvement.
Through a unique public-private sector partnership, motorcycle task analysis research has been completed, and an evaluation of the effectiveness of improved operator licensing examination is on-going. Near-future efforts will test the effectiveness of a motorcycle rider (operator) education course.
Improved motorcycle dynamics and operator handling can be anticipated upon completion of this research and development effort. Successful implementation promises a reduced likelihood of accident involvement during the initial months of motorcycle operation.
