A Comparison Of The Kinematical Features Between Motorcycles And Passenger Cars In Urban Networks
Tzu-Chang Lee, John W. Polak, Michael G.H. Bell

Summary :
The aim of this paper is to examine the hypothesis that motorcyclists exhaust no greater proportion of the kinematical potential of their vehicles than do car drivers. The seemingly aggressive behaviour of motorcyclists could be linked to the mechanical and kinematical advantages of their vehicle, i.e. the capability of swerving and filtering. In order to test this hypothesis, comparisons between the behaviour of motorcycles and passenger cars were made from the kinematical point of view.
