ITF holds virtual Motorcyclists Safety Workshop “Riding in a Safe System” from 9 to 23 June 2021

The workshop is co-organised by the International Transport Forum, the Swedish Transport Administration, VTI, the International Motorcycling Federation (FIM), and the motorcycle manufacturers associations (ACEM and IMMA). The workshop is a follow-up to the Third Global Ministerial Conference on Road Safety, held in Stockholm in February 2020, and will focus on the nine recommendations of the Academic Expert Group and their application to motorcyclists’ safety.

This event builds on the 2008 Lillehammer workshop, which was the first international event to bring together all key stakeholders and which has proven influential in setting the agenda for developing government motorcycle strategies across the world. It also builds on the 2015 ITF research report “Improving Safety for Motorcycle, Scooter and Moped Riders”, which made recommendations on a wide range of measures to improve the safety of motorcyclists.
