Crash preventability demonstration program

Published in the August 2017 issue of Washington Update

The Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) issued an announcement of the initiation of a crash preventability demonstration program. The FMCSA would accept requests for data review (RDRs) to evaluate the preventability of certain categories of crashes through its national data correction system known as DataQs. This notice describes the crash types that will qualify for the demonstration program, the process for submitting RDRs to evaluate the preventability of a crash, how decisions on preventability will be displayed in Agency systems, and the data to be collected through this program for use in future decisions about a longer-term crash preventability program. The crash preventability demonstration program began accepting RDRs on August 1, 2017, for crashes that occur on or after June 1, 2017.
