Demo allows challenges to U.S. crash findings
WASHINGTON, DC - The U.S. Federal Motor Carrier Administration (FMCSA) launches a demonstration project on August 1 that will allow carriers to dispute crash findings applied to collision since June 1. If those crashes are found to be "not preventable", individual Compliance, Safety, Accountability (CSA) scores could improve. The program emerges following a study on crash causes, released earlier in July. The agency will use its DataQs national data correction system to accept Requests for Data Reviews (RDRs) to "evaluate the preventability of certain categories of crashes".
