Public transport is rarely the perfect mobility option due to inefficiencies, so many people opt for motorbikes as a mode of transportation. Motorcycles use less space on the streets and less than half the gasoline that a car consumes. The motorcycle sector’s growth in the country was so fast that although users are learning how to move respectfully, a culture of respect between motorcyclists and drivers on the streets is still needed. Italika offers a mobility solution but places safety with active participation above all. To educate people on sharing the streets with other vehicles requires government assistance and proper regulations to stipulate the responsibilities of drivers according to their vehicle. Confined lanes for two-wheeled vehicles should be defined and traffic regulations must consider motorcycles as a private vehicle.

The more than 2 million motorcycles circulating on the country’s streets barely represent 5 percent of the country’s entire vehicle park.
