Download (PDF, 5.3 MB)
Evaluation of the CSA 2010 Operational Model Test Archived! The U.S. Department of Transportation's Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) today (August 31, 2011) released the University of Michigan Transportation Research Institute (UMTRI) independent evaluation of the Compliance, Safety, Accountability (CSA) program’s Operational Model Test (Op-Model Test). UMTRI’s findings confirm that CSA substantially improves FMCSA’s enforcement and compliance model. The results confirm that the CSA model enables FMCSA and its State Partners to contact more commercial motor carriers earlier to correct safety problems and ensure compliance with safety regulations in order to reduce crashes, injuries, and fatalities related to commercial motor vehicles.
