Abstract

Motorcycles have increased for the last few decades and could increase more. Besides, the number of accidents is mostly dominated by motorcycles. It is caused by the motorcycles which stand on two wheels and are unstable while riding. Considering this problem, it is needed to know how the motorcyclists are willing to protect themselves from an accident. WTP method has been selected as this method which is commonly used in developed countries and recommended to be used in developing countries to calculate accident costs. This study used data obtained from the stated preference survey such as age, income, number of children, and willingness-to-pay choices. The equation model is obtained for each severity level by analyzing the data using SPSS software. The binary logit equation models show that an increase in age and income will improve the probability for motorcyclists to protect themselves from an accident, however when the number of children increases, it will reduce the probability. WTP value of motorcyclists on the risk reduction of serious injuries is 126,500,000 IDR, while WTP value of motorcyclists on the risk reduction of slight injuries is 13,000,000 IDR.
