Résumé

Motorised two-wheelers moving up traffic queues lead to almost 2,000 serious accidents in France every year. With this practice particularly present in large cities, where traffic continues to grow, a team of ISTTAR researchers is trying to understand the mechanisms behind these motorcycle and scooter accidents.
They conducted a one-year observation campaign on 14 major traffic routes in the city of Marseille. Ultimately, their objective is to come up with proposals for the development and restructuring of urban roads that would make this means of transport safer and thus reduce the number of casualties.
