ATRI asks drivers for input on CSA

The American Transportation Research Institute (ATRI) launched its second annual truck driver survey to identify how the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration’s Compliance, Safety, Accountability program (CSA) impacts trucking operations, as well as commercial driver perceptions and attitudes toward the maturing regulatory program.

The brief online survey asks drivers for information on how their perceptions of CSA have changed or been affected as CSA continues its second full year of measuring motor carrier and commercial driver safety performance. The survey also seeks to capture attitudes toward the program and general understanding of its key components.

Commercial drivers are encouraged to provide confidential input on CSA through ATRI’s survey, available online at The aggregated and anonymized results of the survey will be available later this year, accompanied by findings from ATRI’s surveys of other stakeholder groups impacted by CSA, including motor carriers, shippers and the enforcement community.

The survey, which will expand upon the truck driver research that ATRI undertook at last month’s Mid-America Trucking Show (MATS), will be compared and contrasted with ATRI’s CSA research last year — which included data from more than 5,000 drivers.

ATRI is the trucking industry’s not-for-profit research organization. It is engaged in critical research relating to freight transportation’s essential role in maintaining a safe, secure and efficient transportation system.
