Centre for Road Safety

With support from motorcycle groups and our other partners, we develop ways to improve safety for motorcycle riders. Some of these include:

  • The Consumer Rating and Assessment of Safety Helmets CRASH website with detailed safety and comfort ratings of more than 100 helmets
  • The MotoCAP website with product ratings to help choose the right jackets, pants and gloves for the best protection and comfort when your ride

  • Our sponsorship of Motorcycle Awareness Month.
