2020 CONFERENCE

Unfortunately the TAARS 2020 Conference will be held Online this year... More details to come.

TAARS was founded in 1986 as an organization dedicated to advancing Research, Knowledge, Education and Safety in the field of accident reconstruction. TAARS is a broad based organization with members from many different fields, including law enforcement, private investigators, engineers and attorneys. TAARS has a current membership of over 220 members.

TAARS holds mini-seminars and a regular meeting each year in various locations throughout the state. Generally the mini-seminars begin on Friday afternoon and conclude on Saturday afternoon. The annual meeting is normally a two to three day event. We attempt to hold classroom style lectures, field projects and/or various types of testing. The cost of attending each of the meetings is set according to the cost of producing each individual meeting.

TAARS also awards scholarships to accident related schools. The Emmett Williams scholarship sends two people to a Traffic Accident Reconstruction Course. The Conrad Dippel scholarship pays $1000 to a regular member to attend the accident related school of his choice.

As a sampling of the subject matter covered at our meetings, during previous mini-seminars we have had lectures on photography, making and presenting demonstrative evidence, time and distance studies, multi- piece wheels, tire failure analysis, and skid testing of ABS equipped vehicles.

TAARS publishes a newsletter after each meeting and actively seeks articles for publication. If you have any ideas, comments or suggestions you would like to see published or, if you have published any articles and would like to share them, we would be most happy to include them in the newsletter.

We look forward to meeting you at a future meeting. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact us.

Sincerely,

The TAARS Board of Directors
