Road Accidents in Malaysia: Data Analysis On Motorcycle Users

Recently, Superbike Community in Malaysia was shocked by death of a young man (aged 16 years old) due to a road accident. Type of motorcycle involved in the accident was Honda CBR 1000cc (Rabbit)!!!!! 
Everybodies know that what was happen is the provision of God. But we who are still alive need to take it as lessons... Here i would like to share some statistics on motorcycles accidents in Malaysia...

This writing is solely for informational purposes only. I didn't intend to offend anyone...

All data, information and statistics presented here are based on the analysis result from 4 University of Technology Malaysia (UTM) students research in 2003. Data on road crash were analysed for a period of 14 years starting from 1985 to 1998 which was gathered from Statistical Report Road Crash. Information here may have expired due to modernization. However, we can imagine that this information was changed... as now everyone afford to buy a motorcycles... Instead, nowadays we can see that Superbike Riders are everywhere....
The number of accident for every 1,000,000,000 km registered motorcycle increased from 0.45 in year 1990 to 0.82 to in the year 1998 with an increase of 82.2%. However, the number of death for every 1,000 motorcycles involved in accidents reduced form 56.9% in the year 1990 to 41.2% in the year 1998. This data showed that the move taken to reduce the death of motorcycle users had achieved the target, but the moves taken to reduce the number accidents need to be revised. Data analysis from Statistical Report Road Crash showed that the causes of accident were due to human factor based on the fact that more than 59% accident occurred on straight road, more than 59% occurred at rural areas and 67.2% involved in accident was between 11 – 30 years of age. This fact showed that most accidents occurred due to carelessness, not familiar, and lack of disciplines while maneuvering the motorcycle. It was thought that enforcement and education on road safety at primary school could reduce road crash. This data analysis also showed that motorcycle user has lower probability to be involved in an accident for every 1,000,000 km registered vehicles compared with other vehicle users.

Diagram 1 : No. of Death vs Year
(Motorcycle Riders was the highest)

Diagram 2: Accident Location, % of Death vs Year  
(Accident at straight road was the highest)

 Diagram 3: % of Death refer to age
(person aged 11-30years old killed in accident was the highest)

Diagram 4: With helmet / Without Helmet?

 Diagram 5: No. of Motorcycle Users was the highest on the road


My viewpoint, the most effective methods to reduce the % up here is changing the attitudes and habits of the motorcycle rider... This may through the enforcement. After that, through an education. What is ur view on this..?
