Crash Reporting Research

The objective of this project was to assess the completeness of the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration’s (FMCSA’s) Motor Carrier Management Information System (MCMIS) crash database and associated collection issues. The project estimated the rate of crash reporting completeness in MCMIS and developed recommendations for improving the reporting of FMCSA-reportable crashes. The study reviewed the State Data Quality Reports and collected and analyzed a sample of carriers’ crash records, comparing them to the MCMIS crash records. A final report detailing study findings was published.
