UK: Car Crash Reporting Guidelines Prepare for Self-Driving Vehicles

The Model Minimum Uniform Crash Criteria's latest edition has new instructions for reporting the emerging sector of autonomous vehicles.

Officials from many corners of the automotive and technology industries, along with government, see the era of self-driving cars arriving in the not-too-distant future.

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) and the Governors Highway Safety Association just completed the latest edition of the Model Minimum Uniform Crash Criteria, which sets the guidelines for reporting car crash data by law enforcement and other authorities.The MMUCC’s fifth edition now has specific instructions related to reporting crashes related to autonomous vehicles.

“Almost every day, you read about another company that plans to develop AVs, so the widespread deployment may happen sooner than everyone had anticipated,” said Barbara Harsha, of BLH Consulting, the firm managing the MMUCC update project. “Since MMUCC is only updated every five years, the community of data collectors and users wanted to be ready.”
