Pedestrian/Bicycle Crash Investigation – Level II
Prerequisite: Must have successfully completed IPTM’s Pedestrian/Bicycle Crash Investigation – Level 1 course or its equivalent
This course will provide you with the latest theories and approaches to pedestrian/bicycle traffic crash investigations. Building upon the topics presented in IPTM’S Pedestrian/Bicycle Investigation – Level I, our focus in this advanced class will be on the analysis phase of the crash as well as on collisions that occur at night or during other conditions of degraded visibility.
We’ll show you how to develop a systematic approach to the analysis of these crashes so that you will have all the tools and data necessary to understand and explain collision avoidance issues. You will be introduced to the equations and data needed to analyze the speed of both the vehicle and the pedestrian/cyclist at impact.
Actual pedestrian visibility testing will be conducted to help you understand the visibility issues associated with many pedestrian/cyclist crashes. To assist you in completing your investigations, you will be required to conduct pedestrian rate-of-movement testing to augment the pedestrian speed data reviewed in class.
