FMCSA reinstates crash rate, other calculations
Nov 8, 2007 4:17 PM
The Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) has restated without change the administration's policy for calculating crash rates and driver, vehicle, and hazmat out-of-service rates, according to information published in the Federal Register November 7.
FMCSA's calculations were challenged by two motor carriers who were denied safety permits. The carriers argued that the information should have been published in the Federal Register as well as on the FMCSA Web site. The information has been available online since January 2005. FMCSA said it maintains the position that adequate and fair notice was provided to the regulated community of the method by which it would apply the conditions for issuing a safety permit under 49 CFR 385.407. Nevertheless, to foreclose further challenges, FMCSA is restating its methodology through the November 7 publication in the Federal Register.
FMCSA's method of calculation can be reviewed in the Federal Register.
