The final report and recommendations were released today... go to http://www.infrastructure.gov.au/roads/safety/publications/2009/msss_report.aspx (540K PDF file) for a copy Mostly good recommendations - some deserve a bit more debate and some not so good. The top 3 measures are all positive though: 1. Co-operation between the various stakeholders Improving safety for motorcyclists implies to set up a continuing dialogue and co-operation between the various stakeholders, including the motorcyclists themselves, policy makers, researchers, and motorcycle manufacturers. 2. Transport and infrastructure policy It is a fundamental motorcycle safety requirement that motorcycles should have a place in overall transport policy and infrastructure policy/management. 3. Research and evaluation Counter measures need to be founded on evidence-based scientific research into driver and rider behaviour, and before-and-after evaluations should be conducted.
