CSA 2010 What You Need to Know

The Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration has been working for month to prepare the industry for CSA 2010.  Currently this is being tested in 6 states with a full launch set to begin in July 2010 nationwide.

This new system will provide a new safety performance measurement initiative and will provide a fresh look at how it evaluates the safety of motor carriers and drivers.

How will this change affect drivers?

  • Unsafe carrier and driver behaviors that lead to crashes will be identified and addressed
  • Drivers will be more accountable for safe on-road performance

The overall objective for this new initiative is to increase safety on the Nation’s roads, benefiting both commercial and public drivers.
