Motorcycle Crash Causation Study

The primary objective of the Motorcycle Crash Causation Study is to investigate the causes of motorcycle crashes and to enable the development of countermeasures that can be effective in reducing these crashes. Using the field tested methodology developed by the Organization for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD), the study will focus on all relevant aspects of motorcycle crashes that could be susceptible to countermeasures that will either prevent motorcycle crashes from occurring or will lessen the harm resulting from them. The objective of this transportation pooled fund study is to provide additional funding to increase the number of crash investigations that will be used to expand the database.
