The United States Department of Transportation's Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) plans to review how the agency can best monitor and assess the safety of the nation's motor carriers and ensure compliance with federal regulations.

Known as the Comprehensive Safety Analysis 2010 initiative (CSA-2010), this multi-year review project will begin in September with a series of public listening sessions. FMCSA will ask motor carriers, insurance and safety advocacy groups, traffic enforcement professionals, and the public for their views on ways to measure the safety of truck and bus operations and take effective action.

Dates and locations of the sessions are:

  • September 21, Doubletree Hotel, Mission Valley, San Diego CA
  • September 28, Sheraton Atlanta, Atlanta GA
  • October 5, Hampton Inn & Suites Dallas/Mesquite, Mesquite TX
  • October 12, Wyndham Chicago, Chicago IL
  • October 19, Fairview Park Marriot, Falls Church VA
  • October 26, Sheraton Springfield, Springfield MA

The agency currently inspects higher-risk carriers through on-site inspections and reviews. However, it is uncertain whether the process will remain effective in the face of expected increases in freight volume. In the next 20 years, freight volume is expected to increase 50% from current levels.

FMCSA's announcement is in the Federal Register and will be on the Internet at www.fmcsa.dot.gov.
