The majority of NCAP around the world so far only focuses on improving the safety of passenger cars, while most road fatalities and injuries in low-to-middle-income countries occur among motorcyclists, especially in Southeast Asian countries. Southeast Asian countries contributed the most to Powered Two-Wheelers (PTW) fatalities compared to other countries representing 43% of deaths – whereas, in Malaysia, 62.7% of road deaths were among motorcycle users. Thanks to ASEAN NCAP that allows most vehicles entering the ASEAN market to have achieved at least four stars rating out of five.

In order to improve motorcycle safety in Malaysia, Malaysian Institute of Road Safety Research (MIROS) in collaboration with the Malaysia Automotive, Robotics and IoT Institute (MARii) have set forth to formulate a suitable rating system for motorcycles, resulting in the launch of the Malaysia Motorcycle Assessment Program (MyMAP). The program aims to provide motorcycle ratings for motorcyclists to choose the right motorcycle with safer technology and protection for their ride.

In collaboration with the School of Civil Engineering, Universiti Teknologi MARA (UiTM), the ACRS International Outreach Chapter is convening this webinar featuring a keynote speaker who has undertaken important initiatives to raise safety, including reducing the percentage of motorcycle accidents in Malaysia.
During the webinar, the speaker will describe the vision and mission of MyMAP, share the history of developing MyMAP and the challenges faced during the process. In addition, the current and future enhancement of MyMAP also will be further described in this webinar.

Please note that pre-registration is required. All are welcome!
