American Trucking Associations said Tuesday that the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration should be more “candid and transparent” in its evaluations of the strengths and weaknesses of its Compliance, Safety, Accountability program.
The group released a white paper outlining several examples of how FMCSA highlights the benefits of the CSA program, but could provide a clearer picture of the program’s weaknesses.
“ATA’s members are supportive of CSA’s objectives, but they are also eager to see FMCSA make much-needed improvements,” said Rob Abbott, ATA’s vice president for safety policy.
“However, the first step in that process is a candid acknowledgement of the program’s limitations,” he said. “Appropriate and effective recommendations will only come from fully informed participants”
