A study on motor-scooter accidents in China and Germany
Paper i proceeding, 2013

The vehicle traffic accidents have been widely studied not only in the motorized countries but also in the motorizing countries, while in-depth study on motor-scooter accidents has not been adequately investigated. In this research the motor-scooter accident data from IVAC in Changsha of China were collected from in depth accident investigation, at the same time the accidents samples from GIDAS in Hannover Medical University from 2004 to 2010 were also picked out to study the injury mechanism on motor-scooter riders. By utilizing the statistical analysis and accident reconstruction method, the injury location and injury severity of the scooter riders are investigated, furthermore the collision type, collision speed on scooter to car accidents, impact areas on helmets for scooter riders, injury risk as a function of car collision speed are investigated. The research results can provide foundation and reference for the establishment on injury protection measures for scooter riders.
