ATA Calls on FMCSA to Release Study Used for CSA Scoring

American Trucking Associations on Tuesday asked the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration to release a study that was used to develop the scoring system for its Compliance, Safety, Accountability program.

ATA said the study, which deals with the connection between violations and crash risk, was cited by FMCSA as a component in the development of the severity weights for various violations under CSA.

“As a regulated industry, trucking has a right and a need to know how the system we operate under was crafted,” ATA President and CEO Bill Graves said in a statement. “FMCSA has an obligation to release this study so that the industry, and other stakeholders, may evaluate CSA and offer substantive proposals to improve it.”

ATA also recently called on the FMCSA to release a separate study on crash accountability.
