STATEMENTS AND ACCIDENT REPORT FORMS
Training and Mobility Solutions SA offers specialized courses starting at basic crash investigation and culminating in various other courses.
Two crucial areas in any incident or accident that are always incomplete and where many cases are lost and crucial information lost is the completion of the Accident Report form and making a statement.
In terms of the National Road Traffic Act (Act No 93 of 1996) (NRTA), a driver must report his/her involvement in an accident within 24 hours of its occurrence to the nearest Municipal/Metro Police Traffic Department (MMT) office or South African Police Services (SAPS) station. In most cases, the details of the accident are recorded on the specially designed Accident Report (AR) form.
The preamble to this manual describes a real-life situation in the daily routine of an officer in the MMT and SAPS. Recording the details of and investigating an accident are part and parcel of your job. To be able to do so in the most effective and efficient way, it is very important that you are fully knowledgeable about the content of the new AR form
Who Should Attend:
Any official or person who is involved in an accident or incident where an AR form must be completed or where an statement must be given for a criminal trial.
This also relates to any member of the public as they must also have an understanding of the requirements in regard to these two crucial aspects.
