Motorcycles vs. car collisions, which frequently result in serious injury and significant property damage, present a unique challenge for law enforcement officers. With more and more motorcycles on the roads, the South Carolina Criminal Justice Academy has implemented live crash testing into their curriculum so the officers can understand the dynamics of a motorcycle collision.

According to Dale Smith, Traffic Safety Program Manager at the Academy, sixty-five percent of all motorcycle collisions involve another vehicle failing to yield right of way and pulling out in front of a motorcycle.

The course teaches students how to calculate collision speeds, write a reconstruction report and prepare a court testimony in an effort to prepare them for what they will face in a real life scenario.
