On July 11, 2012, Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) Deputy Administrator Bill Bronrott testified about the Compliance, Safety, Accountability (CSA) program before the U.S. House of Representative’s Committee on Small Business. Deputy
Bronrott’s written testimony discusses CSA’s safety benefits and its
impact on small businesses, and is posted on
FMCSA’s Website. Some of the key points of the testimony
are listed below:

  • Independent analysis indicates the CSA Safety Measurement System (SMS)
    is a significant improvement over prior systems to effectively
    meet FMCSA’s Congressional mandate to investigate high-risk carriers.
  • The CSA SMS is effectively monitoring the motor carrier industry. The 200,000 carriers
    with sufficient data to be scored in the SMS are involved in 93% of the crashes
    reported to FMCSA.
