Investigation of Motorcycle Crashes  

This course is designed for experienced traffic crash investigators who have a good working knowledge of the techniques and applications of formulas taught in basic crash investigation courses and who wish to build upon that foundation with more advanced mathematical formulas used to analyze motorcycle crashes.

Various field tests will be conducted showing you a variety of motorcycle skids, accelerations and slide-to-stop drag factors.  You will learn how to photograph skids and examine the subsequent effects that skids have on the tires and surfaces.  Through these tests, you will gain valuable first-hand experience that can be beneficial in court proceedings.

You will be given a manual of applicable information to use as a motorcycle reference book.
 
Topics include:
•  Analyzing and interpreting the motorcycle crash scene
•  Determining acceleration and deceleration characteristics of the motorcycle
•  Analyzing and interpreting modes of instability and handling characteristics in motorcycles
•  Interpreting the operator factor
•  Reviewing motorcycle tires, helmets and other equipment
•  Using a practical application of formulas (projects)

Note:  You should bring a scientific calculator and a traffic template to class.

Prerequisite:  You must have completed, at a minimum, IPTM’s At-Scene Traffic Crash/Traffic Homicide Investigation course or its equivalent.

Audience:  Law enforcement and private traffic crash investigators, claims adjusters, engineers, attorneys, safety officers, military investigative personnel, animators and graphic designers

Course length:  40 hours

 IPTM's Investigation of Motorcycle Crashes course is eligible for 40 ACTAR CEUs.
