The Compliance, Safety, Accountability (CSA) program continues to prod fleets toward technology that can improve their scores. Under CSA, the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration deposits vehicle inspection violations into seven Behavior Analysis & Safety Improvement Categories.
Each month, the violations in each BASIC are scored by Safety Management System formulas to quantify carriers’ on-road safety performance; the higher the SMS score, the more likely trucks are pulled over for inspections. Carriers with high scores also are targeted for interventions and onsite audits, according to a report from our sister site, CCJ.
