MOTORCYCLE/PEDESTRIAN CRASH INVESTIGATION

  • April 14-18, 2014

Prerequisite: The successful completion of an advanced crash investigation course.

Course Description: Since pedestrian and motorcycle crashes usually cause serious injuries to the individuals involved, it is imperative that the on-scene investigator is mindful of what type of evidence to collect and record in order to reconstruct the collision.  This course provides the student with special investigative techniques in pedestrian impact dynamics, time and distance analysis, hit and run investigation, motorcycle types and controls, and motorcycle dynamics.

The instructors will provide training to students through lectures and field exercises which demonstrate pedestrian impact dynamics, motorcycle acceleration factors, braking capabilities, skidmarks, and determination of drag factor for a sliding motorcycle.

Who Should Attend: This course is designed for peace officers and individuals responsible for investigating motor vehicle crashes.
