Car transport drivers operating on the highways and roads of the United States in 2010 can probably expect to be talking to an official from the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) more often, once CSA 2010 is in full operation across America. A recently conducted 30-month field test by the FMCSA and its state partners was designed to measure the efficiency and effectiveness of the new safety management system (SMS) and the systems that have been put in place in CSA 2010 to fix any safety problems that might exist on auto transport vehicles operating on the roads of America. The field tests also showed according to sources that car movers in the United States might be sitting on the side of the highway talking to an official from the FMCSA, once CSA 2010 is fully implemented. The field tests were at first conducted in Colorado, Georgia, Missouri and New Jersey, but in the fall of 2009 they started field tests in Delaware, Kansas, Maryland, Minnesota and Montana, as well.
The Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration's new safety management system is an initiative designed to improve car hauling safety on the roads and highways of the United States and hopefully reduce the total number of motor vehicle related accidents, injuries and fatalities associated with the work of the car transporters of America. This initiative will replace the current SafeSat compliance review system in place in the United States, later this year, once they get CSA 2010 in operation.
Just how did they conduct this road test of the new safety management system that's included with CSA 2010? Apparently, the FMCSA and its state partners applied the new SMS and CSA 2010 interventions to all of the motor carriers they talked to in the states in which they conducted the field tests, in order to try to figure out any operational issues automobile transport professionals might experience during the implementation of CSA 2010 in the states in question, before they decide to roll CSA 2010 out onto the roads of the United States in the months ahead.
