Commercial Motor Vehicle Traffic Safety Facts

The Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) is dedicated to saving lives by preventing crashes involving commercial motor vehicles (CMVs). These fact sheets provide a snapshot of the CMV industry as it relates to fatalities resulting from large truck and bus crashes each year. Data is based on crash data from both FMCSA and the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA). While progress has been made to reduce crashes involving large trucks and buses, more work remains to accomplish our vision, namely, moving towards zero large truck and bus fatalities.

Fully-accessible PDFs of past and present CMV Safety Traffic Fact Sheets are available below.
