Motorcycle Accident In-Depth Study (MAIDS)

MAIDS is the most comprehensive in-depth data currently available for powered-wwo wheeler accidents in Europe. The investigation was conducted during 3 years on 921 accidents from 5 countries using a common research methodology.

The Association of European Motorcycle Manufacturers (ACEM) with the support of the European Commission and other partners conducted an extensive in-depth study of motorcycle and moped accidents during the period 1999-2000 in five sampling areas located in France, Germany, Italy, Netherlands and Spain.

The methodology developed by the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD) for on-scene in-depth motorcycle accident investigations was used by all five research groups in order to maintain consistency in the data collected in each sampling area.
