Samenvatting In June 1996, a covenant was signed to oppose the tampering with engines, particularly in low-speed mopeds, in The Netherlands. In this report it is calculated that over the duration of the covenant (four years), 140 moped riders could be saved from death or injury involving hospital treatment. Whether this savings of fatalities and injuries will be achieved will not be clear until July 1998; on the second and last reference date of the covenant. In The Netherlands many initiatives are taken in the area of educating moped and low-speed moped riders. An active approach to young people seems to have the most effect, and courses for older people are being considered as well. Up to now, it has been difficult for the Dutch police to enforce the regulations concerning mopeds and low-speed mopeds. A more active role of Dutch insurance companies would be needed to improve road safety for moped and low-speed moped riders. The safety of mopeds and low-speed mopeds in The Netherlands is compared with that of Germany and Belgium. In a discussion it is argued to leave the low-speed mopeds on the cycle track, and not on the roadway. This discussion could be reopened, if necessary.
