CSA scorecards available to truck drivers for free

Vigillo, creators of data mining software products designed to aggregate, organize and deliver complex fleet safety information in an easy-to-read scorecard format, announced that its free Roadside Resume scorecard for truck drivers will be available later this month. Roadside Resume will present Comprehensive Safety Analysis driver scores to enable truck drivers to see how they are rated under the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration’s new system of measuring, regulating and enforcing safe driving and operating practices.

“FMCSA does not have a mechanism that allows drivers to access their scores and see where they have safety deficiencies,” says Steve Bryan, chief executive officer of Vigillo. “Roadside Resume will provide that information in a free report at anytime to any driver holding a commercial driver’s license.”

Vigillo says its Roadside Resume driver scorecard will be based on three years of violation history and up to five current and past CDL numbers. The database will include information from carriers that are Vigillo CSA Scorecard subscribers or from the newly created category of Affiliate members of the Vigillo Network, companies that have elected to provide this service to their drivers by giving Vigillo access to their inspection data without paying to receive scorecards.

CSA is designed to score individual drivers on their safety performance based on a complex calculation that is derived from roadside inspections and associated violations. The performance of drivers may have an impact on the ability of a transportation company to secure freight from its customers, and Vigillo expects carriers to be focused on drivers who help and hurt their scores.

“For that reason, knowing CSA scores is critical for drivers,” Bryan says. “There is no other industry where employees are scored and not told how they measure up. For truck drivers, Roadside Resume will easily and effectively address that issue.” Drivers can sign up for a free copy of their Roadside Resume once it becomes available at www.vigillo.com/drivers.

Roadside Resume will be available from Vigillo in conjunction with the upcoming release of its PSP (Pre-employment Screening Program). FMCSA mandates that motor carriers monitor the safety performance of their current drivers under the new CSA methodology. Vigillo PSP is designed to use CSA data to allow fleets to perform the analysis when recruiting and hiring new drivers.

Is there any way to contest a "violation" on CSA? I got a ticket for 59 in a 55 zone. CSA shows that I was charged with 70 in a 55. I still have the ticket, but cant get anywhere with my carrier.

Hope you can help

 @aggravatedtrucker a simple solution to your problem aggrivatedtrucker, Refuse to drive the piece of crap. In my 23 plus years of driving experience, I have came to the understanding that these companies only care about 1 thing. PROFIT, and how much of it they can make. They will cut corners anywhere to save them from losing their profit. This, sadly, includes their maintenance program. That is why many companies today still have equipment out on the road with more than 3 million miles on them and they just keep them going enough to drive down the road. It all boils down to this. If you have a high csa score, you will not be hired by a good reputable company even if you have a clean mvr. It will all come down on you because you keep writing the truck up, and even if the company is not fixing it, YOU keep driving it. The d.o.t. will shut you down and you will be the one that gets stuck with the fine and the csa points, the company will sit back and laugh and they will say this" drivers are a dime a dozen" and you will be out on the street and not able to get a good driving job anywhere. You as a driver are responsible for the safe operation of that rig when you are out on the road. If it has any writeups that would cause you to be shut down in a d.o.t. inspection, I would take it to the nearest truckstop, call your company and tell them the truck is not moving until it is fixed, make them pay for motel and down time.

 @DGlennLeisure  @aggravatedtrucker  I had same type of problem once. Worked one year for small outfit that had 12  "Junkers". I kept doing write-ups and reported problems to owner. I was threatened if I did not stop doing "negative" write-ups. Was told to bypass inspection sites. I contacted D.O.T. here in Texas and showed them my reports. They set up a "sting" one mile from terminal. Eight trucks were caught and shut down. Owner went out of buisiness. He put on my DAC report that I stole freight. I sued him and got my record cleaned. He sold all his equipment to pay fines, court costs and me. I got $25,000.  Been driving 31 years now.  CB handle txdedhed.

Good Morning,
I am the recruiting supervisor at Tri-National Inc. (TNi).
I would like some more information on when this will be available
and how I can sign up for it..Can I, or will I, have access to the
Roadside Resume for potential new hire drivers? If so, is there
a fee to use it? I certainly think this would be a tool to use
to evaluate potential drivers, and use that info to determine if
they would be qualified to drive at Tri-National Inc.
I appreciate your response and look forward to hearing from you.
Thanks, Tom Kemper
