Motorcycle Crash Data Analysis to Support Development of a Retrofit Concrete Barrier System for Freeway Ramps
This project was intended to review the most relevant national and international studies, as well as protocols and standards that were developed to support motorcycle safety on roadways. In addition, crash data analysis was conducted to identify relevant factors involved with motorcycle accidents where the bike has impacted roadside safety barriers on flyovers/connectors or on curves. This crash data review was developed in support of an existing research project sponsored by the Texas Department of Transportation, which aims at identifying and testing retrofit options for existing concrete barriers to contain errant motorcycle occupants during an impact event.
