FMCSA Seeks Comment on Crash Preventability Demonstration Program

FMCSA has asked for public comments on its proposal to decide the usefulness of a program that conducts preventability determinations on certain types of crashes.

FMCSA intends 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.

The agency would accept an RDR when documentation established that the crash was not preventable by the motor carrier or commercial driver. The suggested time period for the crash preventability demonstration program would be 24 months.  This type of program would help to improve the safety measurement data of industry by granting companies the ability to request data reviews of accidents and keep trucking operations from having strikes against their driving records when accidents are not their fault.

ISRI Safety would like to submit comments on behalf of the ISRI membership. If you wish to submit comments or have questions, please contact ISRI’s Transportation Safety Director Commodor Hall or call 202-662-8519. For more details, click here to read the Federal Register notice.
