PEDBIKE 2000 Plus - Searle Calculation

The above graphic shows the program's screen interface. Calculation using Searle formulae.

The PEDBIKE 2000 Plus Software was designed with the field investigator in mind. A technical reconstruction of a collision situation is at times puzzling. Along with the complicated math required to arrive at a vehicle speed, it is easy to make an unnoticed mistake. 

This program will assist the field investigator to verify their long-hand math as well as provide them with valuable information with respect to the case at hand. Make no mistake! The PEDBIKE 2000 Plus program is designed to provide the reconstructionist with the answers they need to verify their work.

With the PEDBIKE 2000 Plus program, you get "Two Programs In One!" Built into the PEDBIKE 2000 Plus is the BACalc - Alcohol Conversion Program. Should you be presented with a Blood-Alcohol situation, the program will help you determine a subject's BAC based on the available data.

Here are the benefits one will experience by using this program...
