Powered Two Wheeler (PTW) riders are among the most vulnerable road users and major efforts are necessary to enhance rider safety. The use of PTWs is increasing worldwide, especially in urban environments. PTWs offer many benefits for personal mobility: less congestion, time gain, energy savings, easier parking.
But … these beneficial opportunities can only be capitalised if PTW safety is further prioritised. As prior initiatives to improve PTW safety have concentrated on single aspects, a truly holistic and integrated approach towards PTW safety is still lacking. This COST Action addresses this gap, by bringing together PTW safety experts in Europe and beyond.
