In our last post, we spoke about a recently proposed bill that seeks to address some of the issues believed to be contributing to truck accidents across the nation. That bill would address issues of concern not only to truck drivers, but also to truck safety advocates. As we mentioned, the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration recently added its own two cents to the truck safety dialogue by proposing changes to the way crash risk is measured by a program known as Compliance, Safety, Accountability (CSA).
Compliance, Safety, Accountability is a program overseen by the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration which has the goal of collecting safety performance and equipment maintenance data and making that data publicly available. The idea is that public reporting of safety performance will help reduce the incidence of trucking accidents.
