Improving infrastructure safety for powered two wheelers

Technological innovations in the field of infrastructure are naturally part of the answer to improving motorcycle safety from an infrastructure design point of view. Yet, in the opinion of ERF and FEMA, the most significant gains can be achieved by implementing solutions which are available today and are proven to be cost-effective. Simple things such as the installation of motorcycle protection systems in guardrails, maintaining the skid resistance of pavement markings and ensuring that roads surfaces are properly maintained can make an important contribution to the safety or riders and help achieve better progress towards reaching the EU’s goal of reducing fatalities by 50% by 2020 in line with the objective set out in the Road Safety Action Program 2011-2020.
