Development of potential conspicuity treatments. 3. Field evaluation of a selected sample of these treatments. 4. Determination of cost benefits. The results indicate that daytime conspicuity can most effectively be improved by use of gap-acceptance, motorcycle accidents, visibility aids, 1 ighting retroreflectorization, fl uorescence. to Additional information regarding motorcycle conspicuity and rider training and education is presented as a basis for efforts to guide crash prevention. Crash Facts and Trends in North Dakota. When considering all crash types, the number of motorcycle crashes in North Dakota largely reflects a.

The objective of this project was to determine the effect of headlight configuration (daytime running lights, high beam, modulating) and rider color (bright yellow, blue denim, and black torso and helmet) on the conspicuity of a motorcycle to .

So what about conspicuity aids like day riding lights and hi-vis clothing? Well, think about where it is relative to the driver's line-of-sight. It's almost certainly BELOW the line of the car's roof. We can spend pots of cash on conspicuity aids but if we don't put them WHERE the . motorcycle” hitting “motorcycle”), light conditions, failure to yield ROW (right of way) by non-motorcycle drivers, light conditions and other variables played significant roles in motorcycle crash-injury outcome.

Summary: Daytime Running Lights (DRL) on motorcycles have been shown to counteract the inherently lower sensory conspicuity of these vehicles and to significantly improve their safety.

The advantage of the use of DRL exclusively by motorcycles is presently becoming lost. MOTORCYCLE CONSPICUITY. The relative effectiveness and acceptability of selected aids to daytime motorcycle conspicuity were investigated in five studies: observational survey of cyclist clothing and accessory use habits; user evaluation survey of currently available fluorescent clothing; fluorescent jacket design study; laboratory trials of selected fluorescent garments and accessories; and.

Increasing Motorcycle Conspicuity aims to illustrate how driving simulation, field studies and laboratory experiments can be used to improve rider safety through the design and evaluation of a range of safety measures. The book outlines the factors that contribute to PTW visibility and detection by car drivers, and presents case studies to.

Therefore, it is possible to isolate conspicuity from the variation of each evaluation day by normalizing with the CTG of the automobile measured on the same day. The fundamental conceptual goal of the system is to make the conspicuity of motorcycles equivalent to that of automobiles.

A comparison with automobiles supports this fundamental concept. development and evaluation of the livery through: • Yellow material is fluorescent (aids daytime conspicuity) and is retro-reflective (aids night-time Battenburg livery for police motorcycles which represents a vulnerable user group in terms of traffic accidents.).

which deserves dedicated evaluation as to causative factors and/or influential variables. The following research was conducted with intentions to investigate the topic of motorcycle conspicuity so as to further explain the variables which positively contribute to a motorcycle being seen and to supplement the body of knowledge that currently exists.

Introduction. Every day about people die and 30 people are seriously injured on the world's roads. 1 A disproportionate burden is borne by low to middle income countries and vulnerable road users such as pedestrians, cyclists, and riders of motorcycles and scooters.

2 Byroad traffic crashes are projected to be the third leading cause of death and disability worldwide. 3 Low. Motorcycles have become a popular form of transpor­ tation in the United States. Sincemotorcy­ cle registrations have increased at nearly four times the rate of all other vehicles.

This measure aimed at enhancing “detectability” among elements of conspicuity and did not aim at enhancing “evaluation of distance and speed” by oncoming traffic that is another element of conspicuity.
