Abstract

Fatigue can be defined as a feeling of drowsiness or sleepiness, tiredness, boredom, or an inability to focus and a mental sluggishness. The aim of the present study is to discover the general perceptions on fatigue risk factor of teenage motorcycle riders in an urban city in Klang Valley, Malaysia. Respondents provided feedback through questionnaires that were developed based on the Motorcycling Fatigue Model and other practices in existing empirical studies. In addition, the questionnaire highlights 18 statements that cover two main components, namely, vehicle or environment factors and rider factors. All the 60 respondents in this study habitually ride various types of motorcycles as their main transportation from and to their homes and offices. Findings indicate that poor road design is the primary contributor to fatigue, whereas driving early in the morning was the least contributor. Although the sample is quite small, the results of this study coincide with those of previous literature.
