Abstract [en]

This paper introduces a new, in-depth 'On The Spot' (OTS) accident research project now underway in the United kingdom (UK). OTS investigators are immediately deployed to the scene of five hundred road crashes each year where they gather data that would otherwise be quickly lost. Previous studies are considered before describing methodology used on the spot and during subsequent follow-up research. Investigations focus on all types of vehicles, the highway, human factors, and the injuries sustained. The project objectives include establishing an in-depth database that will further a better understanding of the causes of crashes and injuries, and assist in the development of solutions.
