2 2 FSWG Compliance Safety Accountability Overview of CSA investigative process Rulemakings / Policy / Initiatives FYI Topics

3 What is CSA? CSA is the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration’s (FMCSA) enforcement and compliance program used to achieve the agency’s mission to reduce commercial motor vehicle crashes, fatalities, and injuries CSA was designed, field-tested, and refined over five years prior to national launch in December 2010

4 CSA’s Results Roadside inspection violation rates are down by 9% Driver violation rates are down by 12% The new SMS has enough performance data to evaluate nearly 40% of active carriers – Those carriers are responsible for more than 92% of reported crashes As of January 2012, FMCSA sent more than 50,000 Warning Letters – An independent evaluation of the field test showed that most carriers improved safety compliance after receiving a Warning Letter or other intervention Website housing SMS hosted nearly 30 million user sessions in the year after launch, versus nearly 4 million in the prior year

5 Upcoming Improvements

6 SMS is designed and intended to be continually improved – Better technology, new data, and continuing analysis will provide both means and opportunity for refinement FMCSA will take a systematic approach to rolling out improvements – Prioritize and package changes at regular intervals – Provide carrier preview period prior to implementation SMS Improvement Process

7 March 2012 – June 2012 Motor carriers preview SMS changes FMCSA and State Partners have access to preview at least 1 week prior to carriers Preview participants will be able to view the carriers’ percentile ranks without the changes (“normal”/public SMS site) and with the enhancements (preview site) July 2012 SMS public website updated with the SMS changes discussed – Both logged-in users and the general public will see percentile ranks – Crash Indicator BASIC percentiles will remain available to only logged-in users Schedule of Upcoming Changes

8 1.Change the Cargo-Related BASIC to Hazardous Materials (HM) BASIC to better identify safety problems related to HM 2.Strengthen the Vehicle Maintenance BASIC by incorporating cargo/load securement violations from today’s Cargo-Related BASIC 3.Better align SMS with Intermodal Equipment Provider (IEP) regulations 4.Align violations included in SMS with CVSA inspection levels by eliminating vehicle violations derived from driver-only inspections and driver violations from vehicle-only inspections SMS Proposed Changes – July 2012

9 5.More accurately identify carriers involved in transporting HM or passengers 6.Modify the SMS Display to: – Change terminology (replace terms Insufficient Data and Inconclusive) to fact-based definitions – Break out crashes with injuries and crashes with fatalities SMS Proposed Changes – July 2012 (cont.)
