Motorcycle Crash Reconstruction R-483

In a recent National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) report, about one out of every 7 fatalities on the road involved a motorcycle. Itis clear that motorcyclists are more vulnerable and much more likely to be injured or killed in a crash than are passengers in a car accident.

Motorcycle Accident Reconstruction purposefully pulls together as much of the relevant accident reconstruction literature and science as possible to present definitive literature that meets the needs of the crash reconstruction industry. The reader will learn to analyze physical evidence, understand what it means, and how to incorporate math and physics into an investigation. Topics featured in this book include:

  • Case studies utilizing event data recorder data
  • Photogrammetry analysis
  • Determining motorcycle speed at the time of an accident

The book provides a unique roadmap for the motorcycle accident reconstructionist user. It is written by two specialists in this field who provide analyses of physical factors that affect motorcycle visibility, motorcycle usage at night, and human factors in motorcycle crashes - to the greater understanding of crash analysts, consultants and safety engineers alike.
