The motorcycles in Malaysia are under 250 cc and are very expensive. In Malaysia, the motorcycles are allowed in highways whereas in some other countries, it is not so. However, safety measures like compulsory wearing of helmet and exclusive motorcycle lane are prevalent in Malaysia. More than half of total traffic fatalities are death related to motorcycle accidents. A study conducted in January 2005 alone revealed that 68.8% of the road traffic accidents involved motorcycle riders.
In terms of the status of the deceased at the time of the accident, most deceased people were drivers with 42.55% and then vehicle passengers with 34.90 and the pedestrians ranked third with 21.27%. In terms of the type of vehicle used, the highest percentage of deceased people was passenger cars (46.33%) and motorcyclists (33.50%). On the other hand, pedestrians hit by cars (56.34%) and motorcycles mostly (34.73%). In damage of different parts of the body, damages to head and face in 88.70%, chest and abdomen in 44.01% and, hands and arms in 41.45% of cases were recorded as one of the most common injuries in the only limb or one of damaged limbs of the deceased
Does your parent or older sibling that can drive, focus on the road or no? Many people think that distracted driving is not that bad of a problem, but it is worse than people think. Distracted driving means that a person is doing something that is getting their attention off the road. According to the article NHTSA in 2015 3,477 people were killed and 391,000 people were injured, just from distracted driving. That is like 300 more people died in 2015 then in 2014.
Whether a motorcyclist is out for a brief evening cruise or a week long road trip, a helmet could be the difference between life and death in an unexpected accident. According to NHTSA, between 1984 and 2006, an estimated 19,230 lives were spared due to helmet utilization, and an additional 12,320 lives would have been saved if a helmet had been worn. Although some argue that strict, involuntary helmet use imposes on motorcyclists freedom to make decisions benefiting themselves, motorcyclists cannot defy the cold, hard statistics and laws of physics that propose involuntary helmet use is crucial. Since the invention of motorcycle in 1885, the government and physicists have been working together to surmise a universal solution to the
Avoid buying a helmet that is neither too loose nor too tight. This might lead to situations your helmet comes off while riding at high-speed posing danger to your life as you try to control the motorcycle. Likewise, you also don’t need to feel uncomfortable from a helmet too tight on your head nerves. This can also result in cases of headaches, impaired visibility and affecting your concentration and alertness you can’t afford to lose while riding your motorcycle.

“The NHTSA reports that in 2015, 10 percent of crashes involving injuries, and 14 percent of all crashes reported by police were directly or indirectly caused by driver distraction. That year, 3,477 people were killed and approximately 391,000 people were injured on American roads as a result of distracted driving” (“Distracted Driving”
Just by reducing accidents and fatalities, the amount of treatment annually will also take a big drop; the helmet study proves that alone. Showing that wearing a motorcycle helmet can save the United States $2.2 billion annually; this will also reduce the amount developing countries spend. Studies also showed that motorcycle training and experience, also make a large impact on accidents. The study from the United Kingdom that utilized a simulator showed that the more training and experience affects the way people ride a motorcycle. One of the easiest things to help reduce the fatality rate is the use of protective equipment.
So not only does slow driving in the fast lane affect the flow of traffic, but it can affect entire rush hour traffic as well. As we know, 1.3 million people die in car crashes a year. And the real problem that causes these horrific accidents is the difference in speed rather than speed itself. As you have probably experienced, while some folks on the highway may go fast than the
Road accidents can bring catastrophes like getting permanent fractures, emotional trauma and more. No one would ever want to get involve in road accidents but the accident’s rate keep rising so there are more people getting involved in road accidents. Willy (2015) indicated that there was a considerable increase in road accidents on Malaysian highways from 2010 to 2014 based on Bukit Aman’s traffic Branch. In 2013, the number of car accidents continued to rise by another 9.4% and accidents involving motorcycles increase by 7.1%. Again in 2014, there were no signs of any slowdown in accident rates.
Now a day’s road accident is a major problem all over the world. The recent report says that annual average of 700,000 road accidents, 10 percentages occur in India which has overtaken China. The latest annual statistics revealed by the World Health organization (WHO) in its first Global status report on road safety, 80,000 people are killed on Indian roads due to speeding, less usage of helmets, seat belts and child restraints in vehicles. So we think one project which is related to accident. We know that when we are driving we wear helmet for our safety What you think helmet give safety?
