Abstract or description

In 2014, 19.6 million households in the UK had motor insurance. In the same year insurers paid £17.1 million in private car claims per day. Vehicle collisions therefore have a significant effect on society, with the potential for devastating impacts both directly and indirectly on those involved. The average claim of £2767, which rises to £11,292 where bodily injuries occur, has
resulted in an increase in ‘staged’ collisions that has reportedly cost each driver in the UK approximately £90 per annum in increased premiums.
A third of fatal and serious collisions take place at road junctions. These incidents and the low speed collisions typically involved in staged incidents, enable simulated scenes to be recreated within relatively small areas.
This workshop/presentation demonstrates how a road collision scene has been created to teach undergraduate Forensic and Policing students. The workshop will demonstrate how this has been developed to reinforce crime scene skills, introduce mapping technology and identify fundamental scientific principles.
