Standard Motorcycle Child Safety Helmet Initiative (MCHI) Program


Brief description of study

The main aim of this intervention study is to test the hypothesis if helmet initiative program will significantly increase helmet usage in primary school students. The secondary aim of this intervention is to evaluate the behavioral change in standard child safety helmet usage among the parent/adult riders. The study was conducted in 23 primary school in Selangor from 1st January 2016 to 31st December 2018 in three different phases.

Detailed Study Description

In Malaysia, the road traffic plans estimated that the number of death on road traffics might increase almost 23% from 2014-2020 (Royal Police of Malaysia, 2017). The main road crash involved the motorcyclist and the main cause of death was due to the severe head injuries. Previous study in Malaysia had reported only 20% of proper helmet usage among the adult riders (Malaysian Institute of Road Safety Research, 2015). This highlights the need to transfer the knowledge to the parent/adult riders on the importance, proper usage and availability of the standard child safety helmet and hence increase the prevalence of standard helmet usage for the pillion riders especially for the children.
