Guidelines for PTW-safer road design in Europe. A handbook that describes the specific needs of riders

Powered-two wheelers differ in their use of the road in a number of ways from other vehicles and riders have different needs.

Predictable road geometry, good visibility, obstacle free zones and good quality road surface with high levels of skid resistance are some major examples. While important for all road users, they are essential for powered-two wheelers.

This handbook describes the specific needs of riders and contains guidelines for those responsible for road design and road maintenance. It includes recommendations and examples from all over Europe.
