FMCSA to critics: Our data is just fine, thank you!

FMCSA says its CSA scores are just fine.

The federal agency most responsible for regulating the U.S. trucking industry has been under attack lately over the quality of its data, especially when it comes to the safety performance of carriers. Now it its firing back at those who have complained.

Overdrive Senior Editor Todd Dills has a story about the FMCSA’s data dilemma and its response to critics on “Commercial Carrier Journal.” Dills writes:

“A new analysis from the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration reiterates the agency’s position that its Safety Measurement System utilizes enough data to issue rankings (also known as “CSA scores”) to prioritize carriers for intervention.

“The report comes amid increasing calls from industry, law enforcement and some members of Congress for FMCSA to remove from public view the rankings generated by the SMS, part of the agency’s Compliance, Safety, Accountability system.”
