GHSA Managing Update of Crash Data Collection Guideline
An expert panel is overseeing the work to produce the 4th edition of the Model Minimum Uniform Crash Criteria guideline next year. A webcast Aug. 3 is an opportunity for more stakeholders to comment.
State and local law enforcement and traffic safety officials have two opportunities Aug. 3 to submit comments and propose changes as the 4th Edition of the Model Minimum Uniform Crash Criteria is developed. An expert panel is overseeing the work to issue the new edition early next year and has accepted comments online for several months. The Governors Highway Safety Association is managing the update process with funding from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.
An amended copy of the guideline showing proposed changes is available at www.mmucc.us/content/proposed-data-element-changes. Comments on the guideline can be submitted in the Forum section of www.mmucc.us, in person Aug. 3 at the Traffic Records Forum in Charlotte, N.C.; and via a webcast of the MMUCC session from the forum from 1 p.m. to 5 p.m.
MMUCC is a voluntary guideline that helps states determine which crash data to collect. The current 3rd Edition of MMUCC was adopted in 2008.
