Project: Review of OECD Motorcycle Accident Data Collection

Reference: S101H/VD

Last update: 12/12/2003 13:10:35

Objectives

This project will:

* assess the suitability and completeness of the TEG 1 and TEG 2 documents;
* contribute to the development of the OECD motorcycle accident data collection modules; and
* propose a module for use in the OTS project based on the above.

Description

This project has been extended to cover further tasks identified by the OECD technical expert group on the development of a methodology for a world-wide harmonised method of investigating motorcycle accidents. Early reports from this project have focussed on providing a common structure for data recording around the world allowing accident sample sizes to be increased by pooling data from several countries.

A task was added to prepare the protocols for motorcycle accidents being investigated in the 'On the Spot project' in theme 1. This has subsequently formed part of the work specification for the two 'On the Spot Accident Data Collection' projects, S075i/VC and S075T/VC. It is expected that a number of motorcycle accidents will be investigated under that project using protocols based on the earlier work of this project. The cases will then be used by this project as a UK contribution to the data base allowing later analysis to be undertaken.

Summary of results

  1. It was agreed that the contractor would develop protocols for the collection of motorcycle accident data as part of a DETR, VSE, OTS accident data collection project. The project has delivered these protocols in the form of data worksheets and coding sheets proposed for the basic data collection level suitable for the UK study.
