Motorcycle friendly crash barriers

European research makes recommendations to change crash barrier design to make them motorcycle friendly

Existing crash barrier design works extremely well for cars, slowing down a vehicle and preventing it from hitting other vehicles or hazards. Existing barrier design however doesn’t work particularly well for motorcyclists and is a factor in 16% of motorcyclist fatalities.

The research provides recommendations for modifying pre-existing barrier installations and guidelines for future barrier design.
