By A. Weissenfeld, M. Baldock and T. Hutchinson

Abstract

An increasing number of people are choosing to ride motorcycles for recreation, pleasure and for commuting. Furthermore, motorcycles have great environmental advantages over cars. However, there are also serious safety concerns. AIMS: The aim of this study is to provide a general descriptive account of trends over time from 1990 to 2009 for motorcycle crashes in South Australia. This is achieved through a comparison of age groups for total motorcycle crashes, single and multiple vehicles crashes, metropolitan and non-metropolitan high and low speed area crashes, and gender of the motorcyclist. DATABASES: Police-reported crash data (Traffic Accident Reporting System TARS) allowed a general exploratory account of motorcycle crashes in South Australia from 1990 to 2009.Adrian Weissenfeld, Matthew Baldock and Paul Hutchinso
