MIROS 1st Motorcycle Outdoor Crash Test [Pictures and Videos]

1. On 13 January 2010, with vision to appear as a world leader in road safety research, Malaysian Institute of Road Safety Research (MIROS) has started doing its own outdoor crash test at its headquarters compound. Even without proper laboratories or equipment, MIROS, an agency under the Transport Ministry has done its first crash test at a slip road next to its office.

2. Motorcyclists constitute 49% of the road user population and the biggest contribution towards road users’ death (about 50%) annually in Malaysia. Thus, it is a common sense that MIROS started its 1st crash test with motorcycle. It is a year of action for MIROS.

How a motorcycle crash is one thing, how about why the crash happen in the first place. I ride a bike everyday and so far so good I have managed to avoid any accident by riding properly.
But I had a few close calls thanks to pot holes on the road, how can Miros help bikers in that situation? On Sunday 8/8/2010 a motorcyclist died after falling into a hole while riding. Things like this can be avoided.
