Of the 104* million registered vehicles in Indonesia, over 34%* are motorised 2 and 3-wheelers. Consequently riders of motorcycles experience the highest incidence of road traffic deaths, and up over 35%* of the annual fatalities.
Addressing key risk factors such as helmet-wearing has been identified as pivotal to reversing the increasing trend of road traffic deaths. As such, comprehensive motorcycle helmet laws have been passed in the country, with these applying to both drivers and passengers. Despite the fact this legislation is well enforced, only 52%* of passengers are reported to wear helmets.
In an effort to achieve an ambitious fatality reduction target of 50%* (deaths per 10,000 vehicles), GRSP is working with government, civil society and business partners alike to support the improvement of speed management, increase public education and foster the capacity of law enforcement.

The programme works with countries at the national level to strengthen road safety legislation, and with cities at the city level to implement proven road safety interventions.
Road user groups
Powered 2 & 3 wheelers
Motorcyclists are just 1% of total road traffic, but account for 19% of all road user deaths. This is a clear sign that there is a huge problem and that correct interventions would greatly reduce the road traffic fatalities. GRSP is heavily involved in advocating better helmet wearing legislations and is helping enforcement agencies be more effective with this road use group.
Drivers have high accountability levels for the road traffic crashes. Legislation, public awareness and enforcement are mostly directed to the drivers with an anticipation of behavioral change and consequential improvement in the road safety situation.
