With the emergence of electric scooter pilot programs in Edmonton, Calgary, and other Canadian cities, a new type of transportation is becoming popularized. However, electric scooters initially appear to occupy a gray area in transportation regulation – are they motor vehicles, like cars, or are they more similar to unpowered scooters?
Infotainment and telematics systems are becoming increasingly popular in modern vehicles. Since the introduction of Ford's SYNC system in 2008, most vehicle manufacturers have developed their own in-car systems that allow occupants to play music, make phone calls, look up directions, control vehicle functions, and even connect to the internet with intuitive interfaces.
A very common request as part of an investigation into an intersection collision is to determine who went through a red light.
Drone emergence and recent developments in technology allow data gathering that previously required larger and more expensive means.
Most vehicles on the road today have an event data recorder (EDR), and the number of EDRs is only increasing as newer vehicles replace older models. EDRs are modules that will record data related to an incident (i.e. a collision). This technology has been around for over 20 years, so now is a good time to look back at how these black boxes have changed the way we investigate collisions.
