Locus road camber.
State the camber of the road at the accident locus.
Camber (also referred to as cross slope, cross fall or cant) is the slope of the road surface measured laterally from the outside edge (or kerb) toward the median line. Camber is positive if the slope rises away from the outside edge or kerb. Camber is negative if the slope falls away from the outside edge.
It is normal for the middle of straight or gently curving roads to be slightly higher than the edges so that rainwater will flow off the sides of the road. Such roads have positive camber on either side of the median line.
