Pedestrian and Bicyclist Collision Investigations Class – Field Demonstration

As part of an ongoing pedestrian safety campaign, the police department conducted a pedestrian collision course for officers.  Yesterday, as part of this training, members of the Collision Reconstruction Unit (CRU) simulated bicycle and pedestrian collisions using bicycles and crash dummies at the training academy.  Officers learned the dynamics and physics of these types of collisions, so that they could better reconstruct and interpret findings at the scene of collisions.  MCPD wants to remind pedestrians and drivers that everyone has a responsibility to pay attention on the road!
