    vehicle debris, vehicle position in or off a roadway, and the position of the injured or
    deceased peopl
    as soon as possible, they do not last more than a few days. EX: roadway dimensions, sight distances, grade
    or slope, locations of traffic-control devices, and distances between landmark

          

  2. Any party who fails to provide the
    required proof commits a noncriminal traffic infraction punishable as a
    non-moving violation as provided in
    chapter 318 of the Florida Statutes.

    enforcement officer, a certificate of registration (or an alternative stated in the statute) for the vehicle he or she operates, except during the first _______ days after purchase of a vehicle
    earliest possible time the driver could have become aware of a potential danger or hazard

          

  4. Point of no escapeis the point in time when the crash
    is inevitable, regardless of the evasive action taken.

          

  5. void citation: "insurance" the law enforcement agency may void the citation if the driver, within _________
    hours of the crash, provides the proof of insurance which was valid at the time of the crash.
    reflects the information for the vehicle being driven by the driver and if the effective date includes the period in which the crash occurred. Example: In Florida, a certificate of registration is issued with each renewal of the registration license tag and reflects the period of one year from the birth date of the owner or from January 1 for vehicles registered under s. 320.08, F.S

          

  6. Pre-existing damage:any damage to a vehicle resulting from the direct pressure of any object in a collision or rollover. It usually appears as scrape marks or striations on the
    body of the vehicle, material rub-off, such as paint from the other vehicle (called paint transfer), rubber, or tree bark, or as a puncture to or imprint on a bumper, guard rail, or other fixed object

          

  7. The post-collision phase (disengagement)is the point when the vehicles separate,
    either naturally or artificially. Often, a second impact known as secondary contact occurs
    in chain reaction collisions or when one vehicle glances off another into the path of a
    third vehicle, property, or person(s).

          

  8. Maximum engagementis the point at which the vehicles or other objects are crushed together to the greatest extent

          

  9. Contact damage:any damage to a vehicle resulting from the direct pressure of any object in a collision or rollover. It usually appears as scrape marks or striations on the
    body of the vehicle, material rub-off, such as paint from the other vehicle (called paint transfer), rubber, or tree bark, or as a puncture to or imprint on a bumper, guard rail, or other fixed object

          

  10. The at-collision phasebegins with the time of initial impact or contact

          

  11. AOCis the point when all activities from the
    crash come to a halt.

          

  12. Vehicle damage falls into three types:contact, induced, and pre-existing.

          

  13. The point of perceptionis the point in time when the crash
    is inevitable, regardless of the evasive action taken.

          

  14. permanent evidence items should be measuredas soon as possible, they do not last more than a few days. EX: roadway dimensions, sight distances, grade
    or slope, locations of traffic-control devices, and distances between landmark

          

  15. The registration is considered current if itreflects the information for the vehicle being driven by the driver and if the effective date includes the period in which the crash occurred. Example: In Florida, a certificate of registration is issued with each renewal of the registration license tag and reflects the period of one year from the birth date of the owner or from January 1 for vehicles registered under s. 320.08, F.S

          

  16. Evasive actionis any action taken by the driver to alter the speed or direction of a vehicle or to avoid a
    pedestrian, such as applying the brakes, turning the steering wheel, or moving out of the
    way

          

  17. Encroachmentoccurs when two objects begin to enter the same space at the same time. This is where the first injury or damage may occur. Damage will occur when
    contact is made between vehicles or objects entering the same space. Evasive action may
    also occur here if no contact is made between vehicles or objects

          

  18. Reaction timeoccurs when two objects begin to enter the same space at the same time. This is where the first injury or damage may occur. Damage will occur when
    contact is made between vehicles or objects entering the same space. Evasive action may
    also occur here if no contact is made between vehicles or objects

          

  19. pre-collision phase or the point of possible perception is theearliest possible time the driver could have become aware of a potential danger or hazard

          

  20. Final restarea of collision

          

  21. Induced damage:any damage to a vehicle other than contact damage, often occurs as bending, breaking, crumpling, twisting, distortion, or buckling of the vehicle metal
