Road accidents involving motorcycle is an alarming matter in Malaysia as well as ASEAN countries. National statistics
showed that motorcycle fatality cases were at average 60% in the year 2007 to 2009. Due to this reason, a prevalence study was performed to tackle one of contributing factors: conspicuity. A survey was conducted to gather information on
functionality of daytime running light (DRL) and brake light, availability of third brake light, motorcyclist attire and existence of helmet reflector in selected area. A total of 950 samples were analyzed. The study shows that 80%
motorcyclist used DRL, with almost 96% motorcycles were not equipped with third brake light, while approximately 44% motorcyclists wore dark attire. A few recommendations are
highlighted in this review paper to increase awareness to motorcyclist regards to conspicuity issue.
