Motor Carrier Safety Research Analysis Committee, Task 1

FMCSA has established an external standing research review committee (the Motor Carrier Safety Research Analysis Committee, or MCSRAC) to provide a consistent process for recognized experts to review the Agency’s research portfolio and provide knowledgeable suggestions for addressing pressing motor carrier safety challenges and opportunities. FMCSA’s research program can benefit from the suggestions and ideas on prioritizing scarce research dollars, and increasing the quality, relevance, and dissemination of motor carrier-related research projects. These funds will be used to support the services of the Transportation Research Board (TRB) in strengthening FMCSA’s Research and Technology Program to better meet the needs of the Agency’s safety mission as well as to inform commercial motor vehicle carrier enforcement, the research community, safety advocates, and industry of active and planned projects. The MCSRAC is a panel of nationally recognized experts in transportation-related research and technology who can provide professional analysis to FMCSA on its research work. The first committee task is complete; the first letter report with recommendations was published in March 2017 and is available at: http://www.trb.org/Main/Blurbs/175792.aspx.
