FMCSA: Know The Facts
The Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration, or FMCSA, is an agency in the US Department of Transportation that regulates the trucking industry in the United States. The primary mission of FMCSA is to reduce crashes, injuries, and fatalities involving large trucks and buses. In order to achieve this goal, the agency created CSA, which stands for Compliance, Safety, and Accountability: a safety and enforcement program that holds motor carriers and drivers accountable for their role in maintaining roadway safety. This program discusses the CSA program and how the data gathered in it will improve the overall safety performance of commercial vehicles on the road.
