FMCSA extends comment period on proposed Safety Measurement System improvements

The U.S. Department of Transportation’s Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) this week announced a 60-day extension of the time that motor carriers have to comment on proposed improvements to the agency’s proposed Safety Measurement System (SMS). The comment period now runs through July 30, 2012.

SMS is the workload prioritization tool that helps FMCSA identify motor carriers for safety intervention. During the extension, FMCSA will reach out to carriers to encourage them to review how proposed enhancements will affect their SMS score and take action to correct potential safety problems before the changes are made. Carriers can access the SMS Preview by visiting the CSA website at www.csa.fmcsa.dot.gov.
