The study is expected to last a minimum of 24 months. FMCSA believes studies show that crash involvement is a strong indicator of future crash risk, while many stakeholders argue that preventability should be taken into consideration. The program will put those arguments to the test. A crash is eligible for participation in the program if it occurred on or after June 1, 2017 and the:

 - By an individual committing or attempting to commit suicide or driving in front      of the CMV

 - By cargo or equipment from another vehicle
