A paper titled ‘Relationship between motorcyclists’ attitudes, behaviour and other attributes with declared accident involvement in Europe‘ co-authored by Athanasios Theofilatos and George Yannis is now published in Traffic Injury Prevention. The objective of this study is to investigate patterns of road safety attitudes and behaviors of motorcyclists in Europe on the basis of the results of the pan-European questionnaire-based survey SARTRE-4, carried out in late 2010 in 18 European countries and Israel. It was found that motorcyclists who tend to have dangerous attitudes and behaviors as well as younger motorcyclists are more likely to have been involved in an accident. The findings of the study provide some insight into the association between attitudes, behaviors, and declared past accident involvement.
