Trucking Industry Showdown: Carriers vs CSA 2010 and FMCSA


A lawsuit was filed on Tuesday by three motor carriers groups in federal court asking for a quick court order to stop the federal government’s Comprehensive Safety Analysis 2010 from going live, and to keep the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) from releasing CSA data – which FMCSA could do as early as this Friday, December 5, 2010.

What are they fighting over? The plaintiffs allege that FMCSA has not done enough to address CSA issues.

Since the federal filing asks for emergency relief, the federal appeal court should be making at least a preliminary ruling very soon. We’ll keep you posted.
