Abstract

In the last few years, the type of craniocerebral injuries sustained by motorcycle and moped riders seems to have changed. In the past, motorcycle riders used their vehicles mostly as a means of getting to work. Safety helmets were seldom used. With improving economic conditions, two-wheeled motor vehicles were increasingly replaced by automobiles. In recent years, however, there has been another motorcycle and moped boom, but these vehicles are now used more and more for recreation purposes (4).
