Challenges in improving the safety of learner motorcyclists
Haworth, Narelle L. & Rowden, Peter J. (2010) Challenges in improving the safety of learner motorcyclists. In Proceedings of 20th Canadian Multidisciplinary Road Safety Conference, Niagara Falls, Ontario.
Inexperience has been shown to be a major factor in many motorcycle crashes worldwide. Learner motorcyclists are not protected from the risks of the on-road environment to the same extent as learner car drivers. Whilst the learner stage has consistently been shown to be the safest phase for car drivers and the provisional stage to be the most dangerous, data from several Australian states has shown similar numbers of learner and provisionally licensed motorcyclists in crashes. This paper reports a review of learner rider safety research undertaken to inform potential future improvements to the licensing and training system in Queensland, Australia.
