Motorcycle Crash Causes and Outcomes: Pilot Study (PDF)

In 2010, the National Highway Traffic Administration (NHTSA) concluded a feasibility study of the Organization for Economic Co-operation and Development data collection protocol for use in the United States. This effort was designed as the precursor to the larger Motorcycle Crash Causation Study. From this effort, data collection forms, investigator training documents, and relationships with local law enforcement were all developed. The successes of the NHTSA pilot study were used in the development of the final work plan for the Motorcycle Crash Causation Study.
