FMCSA updates CSA 2010 data preview website

From the National Safety Council
The Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration on Monday updated its Comprehensive Safety Analysis 2010 data preview website to allow motor carriers to view their individual safety assessments, which will be publicly released in December.

The website provides motor carriers and enforcement staff with information on their standings in Behavior Analysis and Safety Improvement Categories, which are based on roadside data and investigation findings, according to an FMCSA fact sheet (.pdf file). FMCSA officials said the information was made available to give motor carriers the earliest possible opportunity to improve compliance by addressing safety issues and updating their information.

The site is part of the agency's efforts to implement a new compliance and enforcement program to better identify high-risk motor carriers, strengthen enforcement efforts and improve safety performance data.
