How to clarify accident liability at the time of a traffic accident without security camera on site?
(1) Analyze liability based on information gathered at the accident scene: At the time of traffic accident, the police will make a detailed inquiry about the accident from parties concerning vehicles’ directions, relative positions, traffic signals, responsibilities of traffic violations, and results of sobriety tests. (2) Interview the witnesses and investigate the relevant evidence: If there is no security camera around the accident scene, the police will enquire witnesses and investigate relevant pieces of evidence, such as the relative position and pattern of vehicles, the degree of damage to each vehicle, the distribution of scattered objects, scratch and scrape marks, as well as paint, skin or blood transfer on the vehicles or ground, and etc. Then, the police can understand any possible cause and course of the accident and clarify the accident liability for follow-up actions. (3) Security camera is one of the tools for analyzing accident liability: If the security camera has captured the accident, the police will definitely access the footage to determine the facts of the accident and clarify the liability. On the other hand, the police can analyze the accident liability through the above methods if the footage around the accident scene is not taken. (4) Professionalism and credibility: The police are still able to carry out the analysis of accident liability with their professional skills and credibility if there is no security camera around the accident scene. Hence, security camera footage is not an indispensable tool.
