Accident scene examination

Luke Rawalai
Saturday, March 22, 2014

THE LTA organised a week-long workshop aimed at enabling participants to give efficient evidence in court and act as expert witnesses in accident cases.

The workshop was coordinated by two Singaporean experts in traffic accident investigation involving all emergency and road accident response units, including the National Fire Authority and the Police Traffic Department.

LTA spokesman Iliesa Sokia said the participants were taught the importance of data gained from crash investigations and how they could be used to identify the factors that caused accidents.

He said the knowledge of these factors allowed cars and roads to be designed with safety in mind.

"Participants studied and practised the techniques of identifying, recording and gathering evidence as part of the investigation process," he said.

"They also reviewed how this information is then used in an accident reconstruction.

"The participants will gain an appreciation of the extent and nature of the damage that can be done to vehicles, their occupants and pedestrians in an accident."
