HOW DOES CSA 2010 AFFECT MY FLEET?





DBK Telematics can prepare your fleet
for CSA 2010!


Comprehensive Safety Analysis 2010 (CSA 2010) does not give FMCSA the authority to remove drivers from their jobs and cannot be used to rate drivers or to revoke a Commercial Driver’s License (CDL). FMCSA does not have the authority to take those actions. Only State agencies responsible for issuing licenses, CDL or otherwise, have the authority to suspend them.

CSA 2010 does introduce a driver safety assessment tool to help enforcement staff evaluate drivers’ safety as part of motor carrier investigations. Using the new Safety Measurement System (SMS), FMCSA continues to hold motor carriers responsible for the job performance of those who work for them. Therefore, motor carriers are held accountable for their drivers’ errors such as speeding. This is a longstanding FMCSA position and is not unique to CSA 2010 or the new SMS.

Carriers who are considering hiring drivers can review “Driver Profiles” if the drivers have authorized release of their information. These profiles are compiled from FMCSA’s Driver Information Resource (DIR) and will be available to carriers through FMCSA’s new Pre-employment Screening Program (PSP).
