Summary This report sets out a Motorcycle Road Safety Action Plan for Ireland. It covers the period 2010 – 2014. The Action Plan is a requirement under Action 81 of the Road Safety Strategy 2007 – 2012. The issues identified, subsequent targets set, and 28 separate actions set out to address these have been informed by the results of an in-depth analysis of motorcycle collisions over the period January 1997 to December 2006, and are supported by research and best practice from countries in the European Union and beyond. All targets have been set against a 2005-2008 baseline, with completion in the year 2014. Where relevant, existing national targets on reducing fatalities and injuries have been adapted for motorcycle road users. Consultation Process This document sought to obtain the input and views of a broad range of stakeholders on the enhancement of motorcycle safety on Irish roads through the development of a fully integrated Motorcycle Safety Action Plan. We heard from motorcyclists, drivers, interest groups and others who had views, advice and suggestions as to how policy can be developed so as to: reduce the incidents of deaths and injuries to motorcyclists; support the development of motorcycling as a safe and viable means of mobility; attain and surpass international best practices in the area of motorcycle safety. The consultative process commenced on the 24 th April 2009 and lasted until the 31 st July 2009. 2
