Still Not Ready for Prime Time

The Alliance for Safe, Efficient and Competitive Truck Transportation (ASECTT) has joined an industry chorus trying to get FMCSA to remove Compliance Safety Accountability (CSA) scores from public view.

In a Sept. 17 letter to Secretary of Transportation Anthony Foxx, the group, which represents brokers and smaller motor carriers, called for the "immediate removal of individual motor carriers’… scores from any and all public web sites maintained by the Federal Government…"

ASECTT, the ATA, OOIDA, and others contend that the scores paint a skewed picture of a carrier’s actual safety performance.
