FMCSA Participates in a Roundtable on CSA

Last month, the (FMCSA) Administrator Anne Ferro and members of her staff participated in the Small Business Administration’s (SBA) Transportation Safety Roundtable to highlight Compliance, Safety, Accountability’s (CSA) positive impact on safety. The session provided FMCSA with an interactive opportunity to present current, accurate information on CSA and correct rumors and myths. The key points are as follows:

  • The Safety Measurement System (SMS) assesses the relative safety of motor carriers, which allows FMCSA to efficiently and effectively prioritize enforcement resources on motor carrier safety issues.
  • SMS is one of three web-based systems where the public can find information about motor carriers. The other two are the Safety and Fitness Electronic Records System (http://www.safersys.org/), which provides registration data and safety ratings, and the Licensing and Insurance Online Website (http://li-public.fmcsa.dot.gov/), which allows users to confirm that a motor carrier has active operating authority and adequate insurance.
