Agency updates driver safety information

| February 28, 2011

The Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration announced Feb. 25 it has enhanced its Pre-Employment Screening Program by adding data for co-driver safety and post-crash violations to the roadside inspection and crash records previously available.

The PSP report also shows the date drivers’ safety records are updated.

Launched in March 2010, PSP is a safety tool that allows commercial truck and bus companies to electronically obtain drivers’ safety records as part of the hiring process. To access PSP, go to www.psp.fmcsa.dot.gov.
