Planning for motorcycling – a strategy to manage motorcycle risk on the west coast of New Zealand
Submission Date: 2019
The relative scarcity of motorcycle crashes can result in limited sample size on which to base decisions. This can lead to use of limited or outdated historic information and over focussing of effort on random incidents and locations. By reviewing motorcycle crash records, site features, rider feedback and asset management data it is possible to identify combinations of common underlying risk characteristics for route screening. By interrogating route-wide asset data, a risk-based treatment strategy comprising of a combination of reactive and proactive locations and treatments were determined.
