Because Dezful has many motorcyclists, the decision was made to plan a comprehensive study on motorcycle-related injuries in which this study was part of this extensive research. Material and Methods: The purpose of this study was to identify existing information resources for planning about motorcycle events. To gather initial information, a participatory meeting was set up and asked the relevant organizations to provide information about the traffic injuries. In the following, referring to the relevant organizations, the data were collected and analysed. Results: One of the main findings of the study, a serious problem was with the management of information systems related to road traffic injuries, which revealed conflicting information. The results also showed that deaths from traffic accidents decreased but injuries were increasing. The percentage of motorcyclists in the incident is more than other vehicles and most accidents occurred in the 15-35 age group. The highest percentage of education accounted for injuries related to diploma and lower diplomas that include of three-quarters of the total incidents. Conclusion and suggestion: The existence of accurate, practical and available information is one of the key requirements for promoting programs to reduce traffic injuries and the resulting complications; therefore its lack is an important barrier to the success of the programs.
