7.4.3 The RSA will seek

7.4.3 The RSA will seek to continually monitor the outcome of national and international research and new innovations in international best practice, in order to ensure that these are incorporated into the action plan for the benefit of motorcyclist casualty reduction. 7.4.4 The performance towards targets for casualty reduction, and the review of the characteristics and numbers of collisions and casualties among motorcyclists will be undertaken and published annually, in order to identify and react to emerging trends in a timely manner. 23

8 Targets 8.1 Overview 8.1.1 The five primary aims of the Motorcycle Safety Action Plan have been identified as follows: • To reduce the number of motorcycle fatalities; • To reduce the total number of motorcycle casualties (minor, serious). • To reduce the number of motorcycle casualties expressed as proportion of total road casualties. • To reduce the number of casualties in built up areas • To improve motor cycle safety without compromising the safety of other road users. 8.1.2 In so doing, the successful implementation of this Action Plan will contribute to the success of the Road Safety Strategy in achieving measurable safety improvements in Ireland over the period 2007-2012. 8.1.3 A wide range of complementary actions and methods to achieve motorcycle casualty savings are set out in this Motorcycle Safety Action Plan. It focuses on methods for reducing motorcycle casualties by concentrating on measures to improve: • Road design and maintenance • Education and training • Motorcycle equipment • Enforcement • Evaluation 8.1.4 All of the above are known to be key factors in influencing motorcycle casualty numbers and severity. 8.1.5 It is planned that the setting out of a co-ordinated, multi-dimensional strategy, directed towards the identified areas of greatest concern will help us contribute to achievement of national casualty reduction targets, and motorcycle casualty targets specifically. 8.1.6 This Action Plan covers the period 2010-2014, and the overall targets have been set in accordance with World Health Organisation /EU-wide target of: a reduction in road deaths by 50% by the year 2010 from a base of 2001. This target has then been adjusted appropriately for the timescale of this Action Plan. 8.1.7 Furthermore, injury targets have been set in accordance with the RSA Road Safety Strategy 2007-2012 target of: 25% reduction in injuries (from the baseline average of 2004-06). 8.1.8 The targets arrived at in the following sections are deemed to be challenging but realistic based on current and recent trends. 8.2 Specific Targets Reducing Motorcycle Fatalities 8.2.1 An ambitious target of 50% or better per annum in the reduction in motorcycling fatalities has been set in order to ensure that the wider EU target is achieved within the lifetime of this Action Plan. 24
