Abstract: Tire marks are usually encountered in hit and run cases and other accidents. Sometimes, it becomes difficult to the investigating officer to segregate the overlapped tire marks and using them as a tool to identify the vehicle used with high accuracy. Visible tire marks are important evidence during the reconstruction of crime, as they allow conclusions in regards to the speed and type of the vehicle used. In present work an approach has been made to use high resolution photographs to differentiate and segregate the overlapped tire marks on the basis of class and individual characteristics. It was observed that careful examination of high-resolution photographs will be an appropriate tool to examine and identify the tire marks and their linkage to the suspected vehicles with high accuracy.
