FMCSA Seeks Comment on Crash Preventability Demonstration Program

FMCSA Seeks Comment on Crash Preventability Demonstration Program. The Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) is proposing to develop and implement a demonstration program to determine the efficacy of a program to conduct preventability determinations on certain types of crashes that are generally less complex. The agency proposes to accept requests for data reviews (RDRs) that seek to establish the non-preventability of certain crashes through its national data correction system known as DataQs. FMCSA’s notice proposes that the agency would accept an RDR, as part of this program, when documentation established that the crash was not preventable by the motor carrier or commercial driver. The proposed minimum time period for this crash preventability demonstration program would be 24 months. Click here to read the Federal Register notice.
