September 15, 2008 | Virginia News

Effective October 1, 2008, when DMV receives crash reports that have missing information, they will return the crash report to you for completion with a letter informing you of the missing information needed and a due date for resubmitting the form to DMV.

To: Virginia Law Enforcement Partners From: Angelisa Jennings, Deputy Director & VA Traffic Records Coordinator, Virginia Highway Safety Office at DMV Subject: Missing CMV Information on New FR300P Police Crash Reports I am writing to respectfully request your assistance….. In monitoring the new crash reports that are being submitted, we are finding the following concerns with many of the crashes involving commercial motor vehicles (page 0707E): When completing the crash report, in particular for commercial crashes, the:
  1. Licensed Class field is not being filled in
  2. GVWR/GCWR field is not being filled in
  3. Cargo Body Type field is not being filled in
  4. USDOT Number field is not being filled in
  5. Carrier name and address are not being filled in
  6. CMV page (0707E) is not being completed and submitted with crash report for a CMV crash
Please make every effort to submit a fully completed CMV page 0707E. Effective October 1, 2008, when we receive crash reports that have missing information, we will return the crash report to you for completion with a letter informing you of the missing information needed and a due date for resubmitting the form to DMV. Complete and accurate data is the foundation necessary to assist Virginia in successful enforcement, education and awareness efforts. Therefore, it is critical that crash reports are completed thoroughly and that all pages pertaining to each crash are submitted (i.e. CMV page 0707E involving a CMV). We understand that all of you have heavy work loads and know that sometimes completing this form is in addition to other important duties. However, it is important to all of us in the highway safety field that we work together to ensure that our data is as complete, accurate and timely as we possibly can. As always, thank you for assisting us and for all that you do for highway safety in Virginia.
