The accuracy and reliability of observer accounts of vehicle manoeuvres

Written by : Australian Road Research Board

The overall safety of a road network is highly reliant upon its users making sound assessments of the speed, orientation and direction of travel of fellow users. Additionally such factors are of considerable interest within witness (lay) evidence in the conduct of police investigations in criminal and civil legal cases. This webinar looks at past and first hand ARRB research into how difficult it is for humans to accurately judge certain manoeuvers and what can influence the under and over estimation of vehicle speeds, before giving an insight into how readily and accurately eye witnesses recall secondary factors, such as the clothing being worn by a driver, how many passengers were in the vehicle etc.

Presenting this webinar is Paul Hillier, ARRB’s National Technical Leader – Incident Investigations and Strategic Reviews and Grant Johnston the Principal of CSI Australia.

Join us for a webinar on Sep 26, 2017 at 11:00 AM AEST.
