The Executive Office of Public Safety and Security (EOPSS) plans to award an additional $78,000 in federal National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) funds to the RMV to provide the following services:

  • Identify all reportable traffic fatalities occurring within Massachusetts
  • Establish an early notification system within the state FARS process to report qualifying crashes within specified time frames
  • Collect, interpret, code, and enter the required data elements into the NHTSA furnished computer hardware and software within specified time frames
  • Provide any revised, corrected, and/or updated data as soon as they become available
  • Serve as a resource for FARS analysts in other jurisdictions and provide assistance as needed
  • Assist other states as requested by NHTSA and EOPSS in training new FARS staff and supporting FARS data collection activities
  • Promote the use and adoption of FARS data in Massachusetts

The function of the RMV is to efficiently and professionally serve the public in all areas of licensing, registration and titling and to protect public safety through the fair and ethical enforcement of all laws and procedures.  The day-to-day work of the FARS Program in Massachusetts is the responsibility of the RMV’s FARS unit.  This unit works closely with other sections of the RMV as well as other state and local governmental agencies involved with the traffic records system for Massachusetts. The RMV receives no specifically-designated appropriations to provide these services.

Based on the availability of federal funds, the period to which these funds will be applied is June 2015 through December 31, 2015.
