FMCSA Adopts Crash Accountability

The Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration on May 1, 2020 announced that effective immediately it is making permanent a pilot program that will not count a crash in which the motor carrier was not at fault when calculating the carrier’s safety measurement profile. It is also expanding the types of crashes that may be considered. The announcement ends a longtime trucking industry controversy over the agency’s practice of listing crashes on carriers’ public safety profiles in the FMCSA Compliance, Safety, Accountability system without indicating whether the driver or carrier could not have prevented the crash. “The Crash Preventability Determination Program allows carriers and drivers to submit evidence that an eligible crash was not preventable,” the announcement said. “If FMCSA determines the crash was not preventable, it will be listed on the Safety Measurement System but not included when calculating a carrier’s Crash Indicator Behavior Analysis and Safety Improvement Category measure in SMS. Additionally, the not preventable determinations will be noted on a driver’s Pre-Employment Screening Program report.” Under the program, carriers with eligible crashes that occurred on or after Aug. 1, 2019, may submit a Request for Data Review with the required police accident report and other supporting documents, photos or videos through the agency’s DataQs website. “On August 5, 2019, based on experiences with the demonstration program, FMCSA proposed a new Crash Preventability Demonstration Program with a streamlined process,” said the agency’s announcement. “Based on comments received in response to the August 2019 proposal, FMCSA established the CPDP which will expand the types of eligible crashes, modify the Safety Measurement System to exclude crashes with not preventable determinations from the prioritization algorithm and note the not preventable determinations in the Pre-Employment Screening Program.”

"If you know of anyone who is in need of commercial insurance or wants to change please refer them to Todd Smith.  He was outstanding to work with and provided an insurance certificate after normal business hours in a pinch to a new customer.  He went the extra mile and was very easy to work with. Thanks Todd for your help!"
