Washington – The Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration announced on May 25 that the comment period for proposed changes to its Safety Measurement System will be extended to July 30. According to an FMCSA press release, the agency will use the extra time to reach out to additional carriers to encourage them to review how the proposed changes will affect their SMS score, and take action to correct potential safety problems before the changes are implemented.
