SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The Model Minimum Uniform Crash Criteria (MMUCC) provides data elements for describing crashes of motor vehicles in transport that generates the information necessary to improve highway safety within each State and nationally. Statewide motor vehicle traffic crash data systems provide the basic information necessary for effective highway and traffic safety efforts at any level of government—local, State, or Federal. State crash data are used to perform problem identification, establish goals and performance measures, allocate resources, determine the progress of specific programs, and support the development and evaluation VerDate Sep<11>2014 17:36 Oct 06, 2016 Jkt 241001 of highway and vehicle safety countermeasures. The use of State crash data can be hindered by the lack of uniformity between and within States. MMUCC represents a voluntary and collaborative effort to generate uniform crash data that are accurate, reliable, and credible for data-driven highway safety decisions within a State, between States, and at the national level. MMUCC was originally developed in response to requests by States interested in improving and standardizing their State crash data. Lack of uniform reporting made the sharing and comparison of State crash data difficult. Different elements and definitions resulted in incomplete data and misleading results. MMUCC recommends voluntary implementation of a ‘‘minimum set’’ of standardized data elements to promote comparability of data within the highway safety community. It serves as a foundation for State crash data systems. The next planned update of the MMUCC Guideline is scheduled for 2017. Implementation of MMUCC is an ongoing and collaborative effort. Changes to MMUCC approved during the first panel meeting on July 27–28, 2016, included creating new subsections for crashes involving (a) fatalities, (b) large vehicles/hazardous materials, and (c) non motorists; and modifications to existing crash, vehicle and person data elements. This second request for information will provide additional input to the MMUCC expert panel on a number of stakeholders’ proposals including the addition of a new data element for ‘‘Motor Vehicle Automation Equipped and Use.’’ These topics will be discussed during the second meeting on October 27–28, 2016, after which, NHTSA, in collaboration with GHSA, FHWA, and FMCSA, will review and finalize the MMUCC 5th edition for publication in 2017. Additional information about the MMUCC update can be found on the Governor’s Highway Safety Association Web site www.ghsa.org.
