DEVELOPMENT OF A STANDARD METHOD OF REPORTING ENGINEERING INVESTIGATIONS AT ACCIDENT SITES BY STATE ROAD AUTHORITIES. III - FURTHER CONSIDERATIONS AND RECOMMENDATIONS
It is State Road Authority practice to conduct independent engineering investigations at the sites of more serious (usually fatal) accidents, on roads under their control. The coverage given to these accidents can vary widely and the authorities have expressed support for the development of a standard method of reporting and processing the information collected in this way. The basic content for a form has been agreed and two alternative formats of field sheets proposed together with basic procedures for analysis. One of the two forms is self coding and the other utilises optical marking reading techniques. This report considers subsequent State Road Authority comment on those forms and procedures and makes recommendations regarding suitable amendments and subsequent field trials. (Author/TRRL)
