FMCSA Continues to Evaluate and Strengthen CSA

English: Logo of the United States Federal Mot...The Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) has openly sought feedback on its Compliance, Safety, Accountability (CSA) program from safety stakeholders and partners since its development began in 2004. Eight years later, FMCSA continues to gather and analyze stakeholder input in an effort to continuously improve the program and our ability to prevent crashes, injuries, and fatalities involving large trucks and buses.

Studies by the agency and third parties continue to show that CSA is a positive change for safety. This includes recent analysis by the American Transportation Research Institute (ATRI) and their report released on October 1, titled, “Compliance, Safety, Accountability: Analyzing the Relationship of Scores to Crash Risk.” As with prior analyses, FMCSA will conduct an in-depth review of ATRI’s report and its underlying analysis, conclusions, and recommendations. The Agency will carefully consider this information as we work to make well-informed decisions about how to further strengthen the CSA program to better identify unsafe carriers and address safety problems before crashes occur.
