The Federal Government program, Compliance, Safety, Accountability (CSA) was designed to improve motorist safety and prevent commercial motor vehicle (CMV) crashes, injuries, and fatalities. However, a recent report confirmed the allegations of other outside organizations: there are numerous protocols that are lacking and need to be addressed.
The report sites multiple issues, including a lack of focus on how driver behavior contributes to crashes, a lack of inspections, variations in inspections, violations, and violations coding, and publishing flawed and inadequate data.
The fact that many of the issues noted above were outlined more than 7 years ago when the CSA program launched is both disturbing and disappointing. There is no telling how many truckers, motorists, and pedestrians could have avoided injury and even death had the proper safety protocols been put in place.
