Compliance, Safety, Accountability (CSA): Resource Center

Rolled out in December 2010, CSA is a major Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) initiative to improve the effectiveness of the Agency's compliance and enforcement programs. Its goal is to achieve a greater reduction in large truck and bus crashes, injuries, and fatalities, while maximizing the resources of FMCSA and its State partners.

CSA focuses on key areas such as:

  • Reduction of motor vehicle crashes and fatalities.
  • Compliance in maintaining an active USDOT number
  • Replaces the current SafeStat with a new Safety Measurement System
  • Changes the categories measured from 4 Safety Evaluation Areas, to 7 Behavior Analysis Safety Improvement Categories (BASIC's)
    • Unsafe Driving
    • Fatigued Driving (Hours of Service)
    • Driver Fitness
    • Controlled Substances and Alcohol
    • Vehicle Maintenance
    • Cargo Related
    • Crash Indicator
  • Holds motor carriers accountable for all citations issued as a result of road side inspections, crashes, on-site focused inspections and on-site comprehensive inspections, including citations issued to drivers.
  • Targets motor carriers whose Basic's Scores exceed the pre-determined threshold for intervention.
