Abstract The National Agenda for Motorcycle Safety (NAMS) is a comprehensive plan to improve United States motorcycle safety in the 21st century. The NAMS was developed by a technical working group of experts representing all constituencies involved in motorcycle safety, led by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration and the Motorcycle Safety Foundation (MSF), and published in November 2000 (NHTSA, 2000). The 82 individual NAMS recommendations address the full range of topics and strategies relevant to motorcycle safety: human, vehicle, environmental, and social factors to prevent crashes, reduce injuries in crashes, and care for people injured in crashes. The technical working group prioritized the 82 recommendations into three groups: urgent (4 recommendations), essential (56), and necessary (22).
