Crashes of older riders - Characteristics and implications for countermeasures

Mulvihill, Christine & Haworth, Narelle L. (2006) Crashes of older riders - Characteristics and implications for countermeasures. Monash University.

Abstract

An on-line survey of motorcycle riders was undertaken in 2005 to identify the factors contributing to the occurrence and severity of crashes involving older motorcycle riders, to establish any differences in contributory factors between continuing, returned and new older riders (with a particular focus on returned riders) and to identify road safety measures to mitigate contributory factors in the crashes of older riders. Respondents had ridden in Australia in the last five years and were aged 25 and over.

Citation countsare sourced monthly from Scopus and Web of Science® citation databases.

These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.

Citations counts from the Google Scholar™ indexing service can be viewed at the linked Google Scholar™ search.
