“We strongly agree with the National Academies’ conclusion that CSA should be based less on the ‘subject matter expertise’ of enforcement and more on the empirically validated data.” We also see great potential in the Academies’ recommendation that FMCSA overhaul the current CSA methodology in favor of a new, more adaptive, data centric model with the potential to address serious flaws in the system. “We appreciate the work the National Academies of Science has done in helping motor carriers, FMCSA and the general public learn about the limitations of CSA.”
- A recent review by National Academies of Science discovered problems within the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration’s Compliance, Safety, Accountability safety monitoring system
- The NAS says that an overhaul in the CSA is needed after these discoveries were made.
- Other Leaders in the industry agree that there are critical issues that need immediate action in fixing the current system.
“The National Academies of Science (NAS) conducted a review of the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration’s Compliance, Safety, Accountability safety monitoring system which addressed concerns the American Trucking Associations (ATA) has previously raised about the program.”
