The goal of the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) isto reduce the number and severity of commercial motor vehicle (CMV) crashes. Over the last several years, FMCSA has collaborated with the trucking industry to test, evaluate, and encourage the deployment of effective onboard safety systems for CMVs toenhance the safety of all roadway users. The purpose of this document is to provide economic benefits, expected costs, and industry returns on investment for forward collision warning systems described herein. Verification of the costs and benefits of safety systems is critical for facilitating voluntary acceptance of these systems within the motor carrier industry. To ensure deployment, systems must be cost-effective investments that meet user needs. Confidence in onboard safety systemsa ability to reduce commercial-motor-vehicle-involved fatalities and injuries is a necessary precondition for acceptance and adoption of these systems. The benefit-cost analysis presented in this document covers financial metrics, such as return on investment and payback periods, for the end-users of the onboard safety systemsacommercial motor carriers. This document intends to augment, rather than supersede, previous analyses that have been focused on onboard safety systems....
