Abstract

The Iowa Motorcycle Operator Manual states that when a motorcycle and another vehicle collide, more than half of these crashes are caused by drivers entering the rider’s right-of-way. Furthermore, in crashes with motorcyclists, drivers often say they never saw the motorcycle. Therefore, increasing motorcycle conspicuity could help address these issues, resulting in fewer crashes (and injuries and damage).
