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 [email protected] to let us know what changes you’d make to CSA to make it more fair and more accurate.
