To Review costs, benefits of crash at-fault Measure:FMCSA

The Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration wants to be able to weight crashes in the Safety Management System (SMS) differently depending on a motor carrier’s role in those crashes, but a recent analysis that assessed the feasibility of using Police Accident Reports — called PARs for short — has led the agency to the conclusion that more study was needed.
As a result, the FMCSA Administration Anne Ferro, in an address to the Trucking Association Executive Council here Monday, announced that the agency would undertake a focused initiative to analyze a process for updating the 100,000 annual state-reported crash records to including a determination of a motor carrier’s role in a crash.
“While this analysis is a first step in our effort in examining the feasibility of police accident reports to determine crash weighting, more needs to be done,” Ferro told council members Monday.
