Commercial Vehicle Update
Recent trends in the PR-1 reporting - Police Departments are completing the Commercial Vehicle Appendix, but they are not including all of the pertinent information needed to process the forms. For example, DOT number, Carrier Name, Full Address, etc...
After the CT DOT receives
the PR-1 report, any
Commercial Vehicle crashes are uploaded to the CT DMV and then forwarded to the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA). That information is then applied to the individual carrier which will affect its safety rating with FMCSA.
Therefore it is critical that all relevant and the most accurate information is obtained for the carriers involved in crashes, so that it can be processed in a more timely fashion.
If you have any questions about this process feel free to call Kevin Slater at CTSRC (860) 930-2967
