ATRI Asks Drivers to Weigh In On CSA

The brief online survey asks carriers for information on how operations have changed or been affected since the full deployment of CSA in December of last year. The survey also seeks to capture attitudes toward the program and general understanding of its key components.

The American Transportation Research Institute recently launched a survey to identify the impact of CSA (Compliance Safety Accountability) on trucking operations, as well as carrier perceptions and attitudes toward the new regulatory system.

This survey follows ATRI's initiative at this year's Mid-America Trucking Show, which assessed CSA impacts on nearly 5,000 commercial drivers.

The brief online survey asks carriers for information on how operations have changed or been affected since the full deployment of CSA in December of last year. The survey also seeks to capture attitudes toward the program and general understanding of its key components.

The centerpiece of CSA, launched by the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration, is the Safety Measurement System, which is geared to analyze all safety-based violations from inspections and crash data to determine a commercial motor carrier’s on-road performance.

In addition to CSA, FMCSA has increased its enforcement efforts through surprise inspections and full compliance reviews on bus and truck companies.

“I’m proud of FMCSA’s efforts to crack down and take action on unsafe interstate bus and trucking companies,” said FMCSA Administrator Anne S. Ferro. “Our safety investigators, inspectors, and state partners will continue demanding that motor carriers and their drivers adhere to safety requirements. While most of the industry operates safely, I also look forward to working with Congress to add new tools to prevent unsafe companies and drivers from operating.”

Motor carriers are encouraged to provide confidential input on CSA through ATRI's survey, available online at www.atri-online.org.

The results of the carrier and driver surveys will be available later this year.
