FMCSA Looking to Expand Crash Preventability Program
The FMCSA is asking for public input in order to permanently operate and to expand their Crash Preventability
Program. This is the program that carriers can petition for certain crashes to be reviewed and declared as non-
preventable. The proposed changes include:
1. Expanding the crash causes eligible for a review.
2. Streamlining the review process so it doesn't take as long.
The agency intends on having the new process by October 1st for crashes that happened on August 1st till now.
Accidents occurring July 31st or earlier must be submitted by September 30th and reviewed under the current
procedures. Stay tuned for final details next month.
