FMCSA’s Crash Preventability Determination Program
On May 06, 2020 (85 FR 27017), the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) published a notice in the federal register announcing the start of FMCSA’s new Crash Preventability Determination Program. This is an update from 2 previous federal register notices: 1. FMCSA announced a demonstration program to evaluate the preventability of eight categories of crashes through submissions of Requests for Data Review to its national data correction system known as DataQs on July 27, 2017 (82 FR 35045); and 2. FMCSA proposed a Crash Preventability Determination Program with a streamlined process on August 5, 2019 (84 FR 38087) based on experiences with the demonstration program. This notice also responds to many comments received on the proposal to modify the Safety Measurement System to exclude crashes with not preventable determinations from the prioritization algorithm and proposed noting the not preventable determinations in the Pre-Employment Screening Program.
