Overview

Millions of road crashes occur throughout the world every year. A car crash may have ten or more events that could be the cause. The goal is to identify all of these causes in order to understand their complexity and to realize that most car crashes are preventable by eliminating one or more of these causes.

Post-crash investigations determine how and why these failures occur and give additional answers to determine what can be done to prevent similar incidents. Road safety professionals need to know the basics of crash investigation in order to introduce measures to prevent similar crashes in the future. Understanding the crash phases and causes provides skills for the practitioners to improve safety in their community.
