In this article, traffic intersection expert, Gordon Meth, P.E. discusses traffic signals within the context of motor vehicle crashes. His discussion includes a short history of signalized intersections, ways in which signal technology can reduce accidents, and issues with traffic signals that sometimes contribute to the cause of crashes.
The experts at Robson Forensic are frequently retained to investigate motor vehicle crashes in a broad range of environments. We possess the in-house expertise to analyze a range of technical issues including the vehicles, drivers, roadway systems, and environmental conditions.
The Institute of Transportation Engineers (ITE) is an educational and scientific association of nearly 16,000 transportation specialists responsible for meeting mobility and safety needs. The Metropolitan New York/New Jersey Section of ITE’s 2021 Annual Technical Conference had a focus on parking, and how past and current parking practices may apply to future projects. Robson Forensic expert Gordon Meth is a past President of the Metropolitan New York/New Jersey ITE Section, past Chair of the ITE Northeastern District, and is currently on the International Board as Northeastern District Director as well as being chair of the ITE Traffic Engineering Council.
In his presentation, Gordon uses parking studies and available data to discuss the need for standards to adapt to the changing demands for parking in modern development.
More than half of all traffic fatalities in the U.S. and Canada occur on rural roads, with ~2,700 of them (nearly 10%) at rural intersections. In this webinar, Highway Engineer & Intersection Design Expert, Gordon Meth, P.E. discusses the design issues that contribute to these incidents and the engineering solutions that are currently available.
The webinar covers relevant issues such as stopping sight distance, sign placement, and intersection detection. The content is delivered through the lens of litigation, positioning each topic within the context of legal disputes.
Although they are similar, there are distinct differences between roundabouts and traffic circles. In this article the highway engineering experts at Robson Forensic discusses both roadway features with a specific focus on the benefits of modern roundabouts and how they offer advantages in both safety and efficiency.
In this article, civil engineer, Gordon Meth, P.E. discusses the prevalence of pedestrian v. vehicle strikes in parking lots. He examines the scope of the problem as well as parking lot design elements that affect pedestrian safety.
Each year the experts at Robson Forensic investigate hundreds of vehicle crashes, slips/trips, and assaults that occur in parking lots. The experts who investigate each matter vary based on the issues at hand. Please contact us to be put in touch with an appropriate expert for your case.
