Traffic engineers are responsible for the design, construction, and regulation of the traffic system with the goal of ensuring safety.
For traffic accident litigation, it is important to find a qualified traffic engineering expert witness who can provide an expert opinion on the traffic design, construction, or traffic safety.
They are also knowledgeable in traffic signals, signs and markings, right of ways, and other traffic signifiers.
Traffic engineers must also take into consideration such details as:
- Work zones
- Construction safety
- Vehicle dynamics
- Roadway drainage
- Highway lighting
When a traffic or pedestrian accident occurs, an investigation is usually conducted to determine the cause as to who or what was at fault.
An expert in traffic engineering evaluates the design and functionality of roadways and the relevant traffic signs and signals in an effort to assess whether the accident was caused by a miscalculation or error in roadway and traffic design.
Those working within the field are licensed and certified professional engineers and often experienced with accident reconstruction.
