The survey data is collected by sending observers to probabilistically sampled roadways, who observe motorcyclists between the hours of 7 a.m. and 6 p.m. Observations are made either while standing at the roadside or, in the case of expressways, while riding in a vehicle in the traffic. In order to capture the true behavior of motorcyclists, NOPUS observers do not stop motorcycles or interview motorcyclists. The 2009 NOPUS data was collected between June 1 and June 20, 2009, while the 2008 data was collected between June 2 and June 22, 2008.
