First, the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety conducted the tests. Now, it's appealing to the government.

The tests were on the effect of anti-lock braking systems on motorcycles, and the results were dramatic: According to the institute, ABS can reduce fatal motorcycle accidents by up to 37 percent. A separate study by the Highway Loss Data Institute found similarly compelling numbers: 30 percent fewer injury claims, and 22 percent fewer damage claims.

Their appeal is equally noteworthy: a government mandate for ABS systems on all motorcycles.

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration looked at the problem in 2009, but said it required more data. Now, with data from the two studies in hand, the institute sees no reason not to move forward with the legislation.

Motorcycles have separate front and rear brakes. If the brakes are applied too hard, or with an improper distribution of pressure between front brake and rear, a tire lockup can occur, skidding the bike and causing a fall. ABS can prevent such a lockup. Knowing the danger of a lockup, some riders don't apply the brakes hard enough to avoid a crash, but ABS would allow them the confidence to apply the brakes full-force when necessary.
