Abstract

Two-wheeler vehicles (i.e., bicycles, mopeds, and motorcycles) are becoming increasingly popular in congested cities because of their small dimensions, low cost of use compared to cars, and their contribution to a healthy lifestyle.

Due to their small size, two-wheelers tend to be overseen by other road users, especially at intersections. Furthermore, the stability of two-wheelers is easily affected by disturbances such as an uneven road surface. Moreover, the unprotected state of two-wheeler users contributes to a high risk of serious injuries once an accident happens. A better understanding of how crashes occur in the rider-vehicle-road system is needed....
