For this analysis, all owners of a car or a motorcycle were extracted from the central vehicle register and split into three subgroups: Car, motorcycle (MC) or car and motorcycle owner, see table 1. The categories are mutually exclusive so that each person only falls in one category. As table 1 shows, the number of persons who own a motorcycle or both a car and a motorcycle is increasing much more over the period than the group of car owners.
