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.
