SaferWheels will investigate the causes of 500 two-wheeler crashes occurring in the UK, France, Netherlands, Greece, Italy and Poland. Investigation will be conducted either by attending the scene of the crash or using retrospective methods. 

The outcomes of the project will include a detailed analysis of the collision data and recommendations for future EU policies to reduce two-wheeler fatalities and casualties.
