Forensic Investigation of Road Traffic Accident Cases in Pakistan and Types of Physical Evidence
Road accident is an eminent, socio-economic, and felonious problem in all developed and under-developed countries. The dynamics and significance of road accidents are changing day by day and it has not been attracted sufficient attention from modern sciences. Pakistan being an underdeveloped country is far from the advanced traffic management system to curb the increasing score of accidents. Notwithstanding the recent advanced improvements in confronting the road safety challenges, the situation is alarming in Pakistan due to the old and routine methodology of investigation in road accident cases. In this study, attention has been drawn towards the lack of advanced techniques, highlighting research gaps and types of physical evidence in road accident cases in Pakistan using the data collected from primary (survey and interviews) and secondary (government and NGO) sources. The findings show that flaws in substantial and procedural laws, the inability of investigation officers, corruption in government institutions, and non-collection of physical evidence from crime-scene are the main reasons for the deteriorating situation of road safety in the country.
