Motor carriers asked to weigh in on CSA

ARLINGTON, Va. — The American Transportation Research Institute (ATRI) has launched a survey to identify the impacts of CSA (Compliance, Safety and Accountability) enforcement on trucking operations, as well as carrier perceptions and attitudes toward the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration’s new regulatory program. The survey, targeted to motor carriers, follows ATRI’s survey initiative at this year’s Mid-America Trucking Show, which assessed CSA impacts on nearly 5,000 commercial drivers.

The brief online survey asks carriers for information on how operations have changed or been affected since the full deployment of CSA in December of last year.  The survey also seeks to capture attitudes toward the program and general understanding of its key components.  

Motor carriers have been asked to provide confidential input on CSA through ATRI’s survey, available online at The results of the carrier and driver surveys will be available later this year.

  • I went to the site and reviewed the survey. My thoughts are that the FMCSA is not seeing the improvements in roadside inspections that they expected. This to me is another way for them to say to the carriers ” Wake up ” we are serious about this new safety monitoring system.
