Scooters Safer Than Mopeds And Motorcycles
- Jul 05, 2018 -

The new research shows that in the two wheeled motorcycles, the mopers are more likely to be involved in more accidents, more than three times more likely to die on the road, and the bicycle is safe.

This study of the Queensland University of Technology's accident research and road safety center (CARRS-Q) claims to be the first to compare the safety levels of mopeds, scooters and motorcycles.

The study distinguishes mopeds from scooters, allowing motorcycles (50cc and below, speed limit of 50 km / h) to drive automobiles only. Scooters need motorcycle licences in all States and territories.

The difference is important, taking into account that the registration of mopeds increased by 15 times more than motorcycles and scooters between 2001 and 2009, while the registration of motorcycles and scooters has only doubled.

The incidence of collision accidents per registered vehicle and motorcycle per kilometre is higher than that of motorcycle accidents. "

In fact, more light motorcycle riders are more likely to crash, which raises concerns about their relative safety, especially in view of this, which shows that 45% of the moped collisions have led to hospitalization.

The study shows that scooters are similar to mopeds, but data show that scooter riders are unlikely to be involved in crash accidents.

The scooter driver "holds a motorcycle license, so he may ride a bike training".

According to the study, motorcycles are the three of the most deadly of the motorcycles, and 3.4% of the crash deaths are reported, compared with 1% of the reported crashes of mopeds and scooters.

According to the study, the difference of collision severity is related to the use of vehicles.

"Scooter riders also behave more safely than motorcycle riders, although two groups have reached the same licensing requirements. This shows the different attitudes of motorcycle riders taking greater risks on the road.
