The motorcycle is increasingly present in many countries around the world, covering economic mobility needs, leisure and enjoyment. According to WHO the motorcycle fleet in the world increased by 10% between 2013 and 2016, but the accident rate so did, passing its representativeness in the global traffic fatalities, from 23% to 28%.
Spain is one of the European countries with very high motorcycling popularity. Motorcycles are an important mobility tool in the Spanish cities. In addition, motorcycle sport is acknowledged by its continuous success.
Between 2007 and 2017 the Spanish motorcycle fleet has grown by 14% while the number of fatalities and serious injuries has been reduced by 55%, a great advance, but not enough.
A package of additional risk reducing interventions need to be identified and implemented to meet the road safety targets in the Sustainable Development Goals from the United Nations.
Therefore, the Traffic Department of the Spanish Government and ANESDOR, the Spanish motorcycle industry association, have joined efforts to organize an international conference, with the aim to increase knowledge about motorcycle safety, discuss proposals and provide recommendations towards broader global policy making considering the upcoming 2020 Ministerial Conference to be held in February 2020.
