MEETING THE MARK: As a group, the 21 carriers enrolled in PIC last year had little trouble meeting some benchmarks. Others were more difficult. They went over the non-urban collision rate – 0.68 collisions per million miles versus the target of 0.45. And they went over the CVSA vehicle inspections out-of-service rate – 12.6% versus the target of less than 10.0%. In addition, there were three incidents of overloads where the extra weight was more than 20% over the allowable limit (versus a benchmark of zero). Carriers aren’t thrown out of PIC if they exceed the benchmarks. Rather, they have to file exception reports and work to improve their performance.
