Event description

Description

This Public Meeting will cover FMCSA's proposed corrective actions relating to improving data quality and sources of data, as proposed in the National Academies of Science (NAS) report, titled "Improving Motor Carrier Safety Measurement."

Attendees will have the opportunity to ask questions of FMCSA representatives and provide feedback that will help shape the implementation of these recommendations:

  • Collaborate with States to improve the quality of the Motor Carrier Management Information System (MCMIS) data in support of the Safety Measurement System (SMS), focusing on carrier exposure and crash data (recommendation #2).
  • Collect additional data that could potentially benefit the recommended methodology for safety assessment (recommendation #3).
  • Provide external parties, such as researchers and carriers, with a version of the data file and computer code used to compute SMS that is both user-friendly and free of personally identifiable information (recommendation #4).


Virtual Meeting

For those who cannot attend in person, a virtual option is available. Virtual attendees will be able to fully participate via a live webinar, which will allow them to follow along with the meeting presentation and materials, as well as submit questions or input. Note that spaces for both the in-person meeting and the webinar are limited.
