Instructions:

Check this box if the person you are recording was operating a moped.

Definition:

A motor vehicle possessing two wheels in contact with the ground, a seat or saddle for driver and passenger, a steering handle bar, and a brake horsepower not exceeding 2 HP. Unlike motorcycles, a moped by definition cannot include an enclosure.

Rationale:

For data analysis purposes it is useful to be able to extract uncommon vehicle configurations, which likely have very different circumstances surrounding the crash.

Example

Accuracy Checks

  • If the Moped field is checked, the Vehicle Configuration Code must also indicate ‘moped’.
