Nighttime Visibility Study – Collision Site Drive-Through

Two outboard and one inboard video cameras were used to capture the nighttime ambient light. This study used an exemplar vehicle closely matching the year, make, model and color of a car parked illegally on a highway shoulder at the time of collision. Vehicle speed was captured with the onboard camera and GPS data. The difficultly detecting the parked car by the driver of the camera vehicle during this demonstration aided the expert’s testimony in the criminal trial.
