FMCSA active as CSA 2010 launch date approaches

June 17, 2010

As the Nov. 30 launch date looms for the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration's new commercial motor vehicle safety enforcement program, officials are stepping up education efforts. On June 8, officials took part in an interview on the "Land Line Now" radio program to address "myths" about Comprehensive Safety Analysis 2010. The interview aired on SIRIUS 147 and XM 171 on June 10. "Land Line Now" is produced by the Washington-based Owner-Operator Independent Drivers Association.

FMCSA also recently reported that as of June 15, an average of 723 new motor carriers, using their U.S. DOT number and PIN, have viewed their safety data through a Pre-Employment Screening Program website launched April 12. To date, 11,259 unique motor carriers have viewed their safety data. The program is intended to allow CMV carrier companies electronic access to driver inspection and crash records as a part of the hiring process.
