The national Crash VIN Accuracy measure results show the number of States within each rating. A State’s VIN accuracy rating is based on the percentage of the State’s evaluated crash records that have a valid VIN. These crashes were first uploaded between 10/01/2018 and 09/30/2019. Learn how this rating is calculated.

Why this matters

Accurate VINs help FMCSA associate crashes to the right vehicle, which can help prioritize carriers or drivers for interventions that pose the greatest safety risk.
