About ITE

Transportation Forensics and Risk Management Committee

Chair: Rock Miller, Rock E. Miller & Associates, Orange, CA, USA
Vice Chair: Tom Rush, Focus Forensics, Apple Valley, MN, USA

The Transportation Forensics and Risk Management Committee covers issues relating to expert testimony and enhancing professional growth and technical expertise of those serving as expert witnesses in transportation.

The Transportation Forensics and Risk Management Committee supports and sponsors events at ITE's Conferences. The sponsored activities are designed to educate and inform its members on such issues as lessons in litigation concerning pedestrian safety, roadway design, roadway safety, and work-zone safety. In addition, the Committee continues to periodically update and expand the Expert Witness Information Notebook. The notebook provides background information on expert-witness activities for use as a reference and also provides guidance material for newer members in the forensic field. The Committee also has continuing projects that support and promote its goals.


The Committee has prepared a power point presentation for members to present at local and chapter meetings. It is titled, "So You Want to be an Expert?" This presentation familiarizes the audience with the Committee and advises them on what it takes to be an expert. Please volunteer to present this at your local ITE meeting.
