analysis of a crash
Being the safety officer for a club and an Abate chapter I am continually trying to come up with notions that will educate us all on how to ride more safely. It has occurred to me that when someone is involved in a crash we ask, "is he OK, is the bike OK" and that is about it. We don't force the issue, asking about details and what they could have done to help prevent it. We don't call them on the fact that they contributed to the crash. (Notice the word accident has not been used, there is no such thing as an accident. Accident implies that no one is at fault.)
To the point ... I am wondering if it would be a good idea to set up a club discussion in one of our meeting to analyse our mistakes. OKOK everyone's ego is going to get melted a bit, but if we can learn something and save some road rash isn't it worth a bruised ego.
Perhaps a forum discussion on how we could analyze crashes would be of interest and help me to implement or not implement the idea.
I am not interested in re-hashing any particular traffic mishap here but maybe we could talk about the structure of how I could put together a panel ...or ...??
This will also be posted on other forums.
