4.4.4 How Carriers Can Reduce Crashes

Motor carriers are expected to monitor their crashes for patterns and identify countermeasures to reduce the chances for future crashes.  Examples of countermeasures include, but are not limited to:

  • Crashes in a construction zone – Reroute until construction is complete 

  • Crashes due to driver inattention  Hold safety meetings and provide other reminders for focused driving 

  • Crashes due to sun in driver’s eyes – Change time drivers were dispatched 

  • High number of struck in rear crashes – Add brake lights and turn signals at the top of trailers 

  • Loss of control crashes – Pay for drivers to attend driver training class 

  • Unusual number of backing incidents –Review experience of drivers and make needed changes 

  • Weather-related crashes – Create driver recognition program for avoiding driving in adverse weather 

  • Crashes at same time or location – Change routes or dispatch times 

  • Too many crashes – Add stickers on mirrors to remind drivers to be careful
