Case Study & Research- Underinflated Tyre


Every day there are accidents on our roads. The type of accidents could be a vehicle to vehicle crash, a rollover or hitting a solid object. There may be fatalities or serious injuries. Investigators want to know what caused the accident and there are multiple choices to choose from. Causes such as driving under the influence, excessive speed, tiredness, lack of skill or overloading, are a few examples.
