Every Personal Injury Collision is analysed to help determine and prioritise the best way to reduce the chance of future accidents. Was the collision the result of driver error or were there other contributory factors?
Investigators consider all the available factors e.g. the time of day it occurred, the weather conditions, visibility, the type of road surface, the speed and condition of the vehicle.
Most important of all – what can be done to try to avoid further crashes and casualties?
Enhancement of warning signs and lines, targeted publicity, additional road user education, the use of mobile safety cameras to mitigate speeding, are possible options.
