In practice, in the administrative investigation of traffic accidents that are classified as technical types of violations, due to the specificity of the category of cases under consideration, one of the main evidence is the implementation of engineering and transport examinations. The fact that the engineering and transport expertise is not the latest evidence in cases of administrative offenses and making decisions on them requires an increase in the quality of the collection of primary information and leads to an increase in the need for engineering and transport expertise at a higher level.

As well as in establishing the causes and links to the incident of any actions or inaction of the participants in the traffic accident.
