The ITAI 'Crash Day'

  • 9 Jun 2022
  • 09:00 - 17:00
  • Darley Moor, Derbyshire, DE6 2ET



"Crash Day" from the Institute of Traffic Accident Investigators

This June sees the return of our very successful research day where you will be able to attend - for free - and view many staged crashes. We are hoping to have a number of stands and some ''audience participation' events.

This year will find us at a new venue, Darley Moor, the configuration of which will ensure different impacts than you would have seen before, if you have attended the 'pre covid' events.

The event is outdoors and will follow all appropriate Government guidelines and will only be cancelled if required under those guidelines.

As we get nearer more details of the day will be added to this description.

So, book early to avoid disappointment, as when capacity is reached, we will have to stop accepting bookings.

For a sample of what you might see, here is a high speed video of a Vauxhall Vectra into X-Type Jaguar video: https://youtu.be/aVFJjT9JLu8
