Speeding – One of the most common factors that influence road accidents. Thirteen road accident experts from 12 countries have agreed to carry out a collaborative exercise to compare the solutions in their countries. The participants of the inter-laboratory exercise were asked to use their own standard form of reporting and answer the questions in their usual manner. In their summaries there was no significant difference between the results of their calculations, as well as in their conclusions about the possibility of avoiding the accident if the speed had not been exceeded. Also all participants found that the driver’s speeding had a causal link with road accident. There are, however, significant differences between experts in assessing the root cause of this road accident. Accuracy of calculation is not itself sufficient to reach the right conclusion, and it is necessary to assess the reliability of the reconstruction/opinion.
