Some proposals for improving the assessment methodology at examining traffic accidents (TA) are presented with a due account to the composition of the brake fluid, the change of which during operation may cause an operation time increase of the brake actuator and, as a consequence, the length of the stopping path of the vehicle. Consistent pattern of the influence of moisture percentage in braking fluid on the general response time of the braking system is experimentally determined. The coefficient considering the influence of this factor on the estimated time of braking and the length of stopping way of the vehicle has been calculated and substantiated.
