The prevalence and correlates of hazardous motorcycling behavior among senior high school students in Haulien County were examined. Students were grouped by school and grade level, then were randomly selected by class. In total, 1152 students in the tenth, eleventh, and twelfth grades representing 27 classes in nine schools from Hualien County completed an anonymous questionnaire. Results indicate that the most prevalent hazardous motorcycling behaviors among the respondents were not getting a license to operate a motorcycle, motorcycling in the fast lane, not wearing a helmet, and motorcycling at high speed. The rates were 79.0%, 70.9%, 60.7%, and 63.9%, respectively. Gender, race, school, the extrovert trait, attitudes toward safety, and current smoking were found to be significantly associated with hazardous motorcycling behaviors. Enforcing mandatory helmet regulations, improving the structural design of helmets, establishing laws to prohibit hazardous mortorcycling behaviors, and providing educational programs for adolescents are recommended.
