When choosing to ride a motorcycle, individuals place themselves at greater potential risk than when traveling in other modes of transportation. This increased risk has historically resulted in a greater death and injury rate for motorcyclists than for other types of motor vehicles. In dealing with this problem, public policy decisions have generally taken the form of either vehicle equipment requirements or education. This research shall examine the effectiveness of the education alternative.
