CSA Compliance, Safety, Accountability Safety Measurement System (SMS) focusing on unsafe behaviors to reduce CMV crashes, injuries and fatalities. Roadside violations and crashes are sorted into 7 behavior categories (BASIC’s). Points are assessed to the carrier AND the driver! DOT intervention if points get too high. Carrier can receive unfit safety rating.

How Compliance Affects Your Loads Tractor placed in hold status (unable to receive trip advances & not visible on available load board). Load will be stopped in route if non-compliant issues disqualify the operator or equipment. Load repowered if operator or equipment cannot satisfy non- compliant issues in a timely manner.
Equipment Compliance Periodic Inspections (120 Day) Tractor or trailer on hold if past due. Failed inspection stops load until repairs are made. DOT/MTO Roadside Inspections Out of service (OOS) violations stop the load until: Equipment repairs are made. Driver violations have been corrected or OOS time met.
