Pedestrian/Bicycle Crash Investigation - Level I  

Pedestrian and bicycle crashes are one of the most frequent types of injurious crashes in urban areas. Because of their unique nature, special techniques are required to investigate and reconstruct these incidents.

This course addresses the special dynamics involved in pedestrian and bicycle traffic crashes. From reaction times to victim injury analysis to environmental factors, you’ll learn to recognize and interpret the evidence and correlate it with the collision sequence.

In addition to classroom instruction, practical exercises and staged crash situations will be used to give you “hands-on” experience.

  • Types of data:objective, subjective and performance
