Scene Visit

A scene visit includes a detailed examination of the area around the collision site and, if requested, a colour 3D laser survey to capture the scene geometry and topography.

The following is a list of the information / evidence that can be generated following a scene visit:

  • Details and positions of any marks on the road surface including police marks, tyre marks and damage.
  • A 3D point cloud of the site which can be used in CAD / 3D modelling software to accurately reconstruct the collision scene.
  • Condition of the road surface.
  • Damage to roadside furniture.
  • Details of signs and notices leading up to the impact site.
  • Locating additional physical evidence in the form of vehicle components.
  • Obstructions to the line of sight.
  • Details of the view available to the involved parties and also the witnesses.
  • Topography of the road to determine whether there were any hidden dips / bumps.
  • The gradient of the road surface which could influence the braking calculations.
  • Traffic light timing / sequencing.
  • The position of any CCTV cameras.
  • Identification of additional witnesses.
  • Light intensity reading from streetlamps etc.
