MATAI is The Midwest Association of Technical Accident Investigators.
  • From their website:
    • MATAI, was formed to provide a professional affiliation of individuals dedicated to advancement in the technical aspects of motor vehicle traffic accident investigations.
      Through their affiliation with MATAI, professionals in the field of accident investigation discuss problem areas and work together to improve the process of accident investigation and the presentation of related evidence in court.
      An annual conference and general meeting is held each spring so that members can get together to discuss activities of the past year in the reconstruction field and to prove that the various formulas used in the field are accurate.
      Founded in 1986, MATAI was one of the original contributing organizations involved in the development and establishment of the Accreditation Commission for Traffic Accident Reconstruction (ACTAR). Currently, more than 46% of the MATAI membership is Accredited by ACTAR. Please read a brief history of our organization.
      A membership application is available for download in Acrobat Reader format, or you may review membership requirements before downloading or printing an application form.
