  1. Data are presented as Odds Ratios and 95% CI
  2. For all other variables, the reference group is the alternative option (i.e. ≥ 16 yrs, no helmet, passenger, female sex)
  3. Significantly increased or reduced odds are bolded
  4. aEach odds ratio is simultaneously adjusted for the other listed variables
  5. b1990-1995 is the reference
