GREENBELT, Md. – Those driving trucks in the U.S. without electronic logging devices (ELDs) or grandfathered automatic on-board recording devices (AOBRDs) will now risk 10 hours out of service. Soft enforcement of a related mandate, which began on Dec. 18,…
WASHINGTON, DC – The U.S. Federal Motor Carrier Administration (FMCSA) launches a demonstration project on August 1 that will allow carriers to dispute crash findings applied to collision since June 1.
If those crashes are found to be “not preventable”, individual Compliance, Safety, Accountability (CSA) scores could improve.
The program emerges following a study on crash causes, released earlier in July.
The agency will use its DataQs national data correction system to accept Requests for Data Reviews (RDRs) to “evaluate the preventability of certain categories of crashes”.
WASHINGTON, DC – U.S. regulators are preparing a two-year demonstration program that will help determine which “less complex” crashes should be considered preventable for the purpose of a carrier’s safety rating.
It’s the latest step in an overhaul of the Compliance, Safety, Accountability (CSA) program, which scores violations under Behavior Analysis and Safety Improvements Categories (BASICS) including a “crash indicator”.
Carriers have for some time been asking how to remove scores for crashes that they don’t believe are their fault, Joe DeLorenzo
WASHINGTON, DC — The U.S. Customs & Border Protection (CBP) agency is moving forward on a pilot program aiming to simplify Canadian shipments in-transit through the United States. That is, loads originating in Canada and ending in Canada but travelling via the U.S. en route.
In fact, CBP’s In-Transit Manifest Pilot Program will work to restore the once common in-transit practice that was curtailed by post-9/11 changes to U.S. border security procedures. Nine Canadian carriers involved in the program will be able to use a limited set of data when crossing the border, easing the administrative burden significantly.
According to a notice published in the U.S. Federal Register yesterday, “Test participants will submit electronically an in-transit manifest with a relaxed validation for the value data element and they will not have to provide the Harmonized Tariff Schedule (HTS) number.”
WASHINGTON, D.C — Since its inception in 1988, Operation Roadcheck — in which officials inspect thousands of trucks across North America over a 72-hour period — has grown into the largest targeted vehicle inspection period on the planet.
ARLINGTON, VA – The Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration’s (FMCSA) CSA safety enforcement program cannot accurately assess the safety of small carriers, the Government Accountability Office (GAO) found in its recent review.
ARLINGTON, VA – Many truck drivers in the U.S. are still confused over the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration’s Compliance Safety and Accountability (CSA) program, according to a white paper by the American Transportation Research Institute.
