Motorcycle Crash Investigation (Meriden, CT)
Pedestrian and Bicycle crashes are often poorly investigated because officers are poorly trained. This 5-day course is designed to instruct police officers in specific disciplines of investigation and documentation of evidence from these types of collisions. Specific factors related to this special type of crash will be discussed. There will be detailed instruction on identification of roadway markings, vehicle damage, pedestrian/cyclist injuries and bicycle damage and how they apply to the reconstruction. Specific mathematical models and formulas will be demonstrated, defined and practiced. Human factors will be discussed and reviewed as to their relationship to the causation of the collision. Ultimately, the officer will have a comprehensive understanding of how to collect, interpret and reach reasonable conclusions based upon their reconstruction of the events.
According to the National Governor’s Highway Safety Association, 2019 is projected to have the largest number of pedestrian fatalities in the U.S. since 1990.
