Updates to the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration’s Compliance, Safety, Accountability enforcement program begin this week, as changes in the program’s BASICs (Behavior Analysis and Safety Improvement Category) and certain changes to violation severity weights go into effect. 

As part of one of the larger changes, the agency is attempting to address industry concerns over perceived score inequities by implementing a new violation in the Driver Fitness BASIC, categorizing suspensions as either safety or non-safety related. Changes to speeding violation weights, load securement, hazardous material hauling and more have also been implemented.
