About this event
Motorcyclists and scooter riders are an important part of our transport mix, however they are overrepresented in our road trauma. The reasons for this overrepresentation are not a single cause, but many contributing factors such as the speeds at which we travel; the safety features of the vehicles; the riding task and the design, operation and maintenance of our roads and roadsides. The Victorian Chapter of The Australasian College of Road Safety is hosting an interactive Motorcycle Safety Forum to explore the current status quo, issues and solutions relating to motorcycle safety. This will be an interactive event requiring participants to inform the content and discussion.

The output will be used to help shape the College’s position on motorcycle safety and will be provided to the Victorian Government for their consideration in motorcycle safety policy and investment.

Topics for which we’ll be seeking participant input:

  • Safe vehicles – Cars, trucks and motorcycles
  • Safe speeds – Travel speeds on our network
  • Safe gear – Protective gear standards, legislation, promotion
  • Safe people – Training, skills, enforcement, licensing
  • Safe roads – Infrastructure design, operation and maintenance
  • Other topics that affect motorcycle safety
