Accidents of Motorcyclists - Increase of Safety By Technical Measures on the Basis of Knowledge Derived From Real-Life Accidents 856123
Technical safety measures call for detailed knowledge of how
accidents occur. Accidents involving two-wheel vehicles pose
particular problems in describing the course of the accident and
injury severity as well as ascertaining the causes.
Using material covering approximately 3,500 accidents with
motorized two-wheelers, a realistic classification system is
explained and problems of the different two-wheel categories are
shown in this paper.
Experimental and mathematical simulations of the main accident
type lead to some suggestions on how to change the motorcycle by
adding some safety elements to reduce the injury risk of the
A safety motorcycle is introduced that can improve, in a
positive way, the flight path of the driver after an impact without
