Topic: Accident versus Crash Posted: May/12/2016 at 9:56pm – author:jvecchi
General: I propose that we replace the word “accident” in all cases with the word “crash”. This would be in sync with the common usage among traffic safety stakeholders. In reading MAP-21, I noted that the federal legislation uses both terms and uses them interchangeably. So, since there is no strict adherence to the term “accident” in federal traffic safety legislation, it appears that it is time for us to make this change in the national “crash” standard.
