Abstract

The article is considered issues forensic experts face while forensic avtotechnical examinations (expert research) during technical analysis of drivers actions of operational vehicles at signal-controlled intersections. Recently a large number of traffic accidents occur involving operational vehicles which include vehicles: ambulance, road safety service, emergency rescue service, fire service, cash-in-transit service, patrol service of police and others. Traffic Code of Ukraine define the duties and rights of the operational vehicles drivers carrying out urgent official task can derogate from requirements of sections 8 (except traffic controller signals), 10–18, 26, 27 and item 28.1 of this Code subject to inclusion of blue flashing beacon or red color and a special sound signal and ensuring traffic safety.

The most common cause of traffic accidents are erroneous actions of road users that require from forensic avtotechnical examiners in-depth analysis and proper assessment regarding requirements of the Traffic Сode of Ukraine and other normative documents. During of the pre-trial investigation and while the judicial inquiry of cases regarding traffic accidents, the analysis of its participants actions is paid special attention. Appointing a forensic avtotechnical examination investigators (judges) are waiting for a forensic examiner performing of in-depth scientific research of actions vehicles drivers based on special knowledge in the field of forensic avtotechnics.
