Sound off: How would you change the DOT’s CSA carrier rating system?

FMCSA last week said it has submitted a plan to Congress to begin the process of instituting reforms to its oft-derided Compliance, Safety, Accountability program. CSA went live in 2011, instituting a peer-to-peer rating system that scored carriers based on roadside inspection data and more. FMCSA used those scores to determine whether intervention was needed with carriers via an on-site compliance review. Congress in 2015 pulled the program from public view due to a myriad of issues that trucking industry stakeholders said made the scores unreliable and unfair.

What changes would you like to see be made to the CSA program?

FMCSA is holding a public meeting Aug. 29 to hear input from industry stakeholders. Sound off in the comment section below or email CCJ Senior Editor James Jaillet at to let us know what changes you’d make to CSA to make it more fair and more accurate.
