Crash Preventability Demonstration Program Overview

On August 1, 2017, the Agency began accepting Requests for Data Review (RDRs) into its Crash Preventability Demonstration Program through DataQs.  Crashes eligible for the Crash Preventability Demonstration Program must have occurred on or after June 1, 2017. FMCSA accepted crashes in the 8 eligible crash types through September 30, 2019.  All RDRs submitted on or before September 30, 2019, will be reviewed, and, if the crash is eligible, a determination will be provided by FMCSA.

On August 5, 2019, FMCSA published a proposal for a new long term program in the Federal Register.  The comment period closes on October 4, 2019.  The Agency will then review all submitted comments to determine any needed changes to the program and will complete required changes to the DataQs system.

A second Federal Register notice will be published to announce the start of the new program.  The new program will retroactively accept eligible crashes that occurred on or after August 1, 2019.  As a result, all eligible crashes that occurred after the close of the Demonstration Program may be submitted to the Agency when the new program begins. 

The press release related to the proposal is available here.
