SMARTER presents at SMSA National Training Summit

This is a SMARTER PowerPoint presentation at the 2019 State Motorcycle Safety Administrators (SMSA) conference held September 12-14 in Grand Rapids, MI. The information presented in the workshop is counter-intuitive and challenges our common assumptions; however, the ideas are rooted in the available research.  The belief that traditional rider training, motorist awareness communication campaigns and motorcycle license endorsements are effective measures to reduce crash risk is not supported by available research.  Insights collected from the research regarding what changes to these traditional countermeasures might lead to effectiveness were shared.
