Pavement Edge Drop Off (VoD)  

This Video on Demand addresses the one of the most misunderstood and least considered factors in crash investigation – pavement edge drop off. When vehicles leave the pavement edge to a lowered or unimproved shoulder area, even for a moment, the effect of encountering a raised edge of pavement upon re-entry can have a significant role in the resulting collision. Whether your case involves a single vehicle rollover, or a cross-over into the opposing lane, when a pavement edge drop off exists it can be a factor precipitating the loss of control.

Your instructor, George Ruotolo, will also explain other important contributing factors including, the speed of the errant vehicle, the angle of exit or re-entry from the lane, and whether the driver might lose or maintain control upon re-entry. He will use examples from actual cases and review the large body of research into this phenomenon.
