CSA Update – The Continuing Struggle to Get Things Right


This article is an update to the February 9, 2012 comprehensive review of the FMCSA’s CSA program written by Walt Metz, entitled “CSA and Motor Carrier Safety Ratings: The Past, Present and Future” published in JD Supra. CSA continues to be a work in progress and recent changes make it no less controversial. Developments that have occurred since the first article was published include a delay by the FMCSA in implementing a system for assessing carrier responsibility for reportable crashes, changes or “enhancements” to the Safety Measurement System (“SMS”), and a further delays in implementing the FMCSA’s plan to use SMS data in the making of Safety Fitness Determinations for carriers. These three issues are addressed in the article update.
