Associations Praised

Arlington, Va. – Today, American Trucking Associations praised the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration for responding to several concerns the industry had raised about its Compliance, Safety, Accountability program.

 

“It is refreshing when a regulatory agency listens to the concerns of those most impacted by their actions, so we should take time to praise FMCSA for taking steps to address issues ATA has raised,” ATA President and CEO Bill Graves said. “In looking more closely at violation severity weights, for instance, FMCSA is taking some steps to make sure CSA achieves its stated goal of targeting carriers with increased crash risk.”

 ATA Appreciates FMCSA’s CSA Changes, but Urges Further Improvements

FMCSA’s announced changes: including renaming the “Fatigued Driving” category of violations to “Hours-of-Service Compliance” to reflect that most violations are not for fatigued driving, but are paperwork-related infractions and renaming the “Hazardous Materials” category “Hazardous Materials Compliance,” an acknowledgement that these violations are not always indicative of overall safety performance. The agency also agreed to hold back the hazmat data from public view, conceding that a poor hazmat compliance score does not always indicate safety issues.

However, ATA urged the agency to continue to address serious shortcomings in the program and make badly needed improvements.

“These changes, while appreciated, point to the issue ATA has been urging FMCSA to address for some time: CSA scores are not necessarily indicative of elevated crash risk,” Graves said. “Several studies have told us this, and FMCSA’s changes indicate they believe it as well.

“ATA supports CSA’s original goal of reducing crashes by targeting unsafe carriers, but too often, the system highlights violations that bear little direct – or even indirect – relationship to crash risk,” he said. “FMCSA must continue to hold true to CSA’s original goal and make changes to the program as necessary to do so.”

Averting Strike

Dockworkers extend contract talks, averting strike

(Reuters) – Negotiations between the dockworkers union and the organization for shipping companies and ports have been extended for 90 days, through December 29, averting a potential strike that would stop deliveries to ports along the U.S. Atlantic and Gulf coasts.

The collective bargaining agreement between the International Longshoremen’s Association (ILA) and the U.S. Maritime Alliance (USMX) was set to expire on September 30.
