Another CSA audit in the works

| October 23, 2012

House Reps. John J Duncan (R-Tenn.) and Peter Defazio (D-Ore.) have asked the Department of Transportation Office of Inspector General for an audit on the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration’s Compliance, Safety, Accountability program after witnesses at recent hearings said that FMCSA’s lack of quality data and inappropriate weighting of violations and other scoring problems produce “erroneously labeled” scores of carriers.

Duncan and Defazio have asked that the audit be submitted by Aug. 1, 2013. For the full report on the looming audit, see Overdrive sister site CCJ‘s article.

    If the law enforcement officers and inspectors were graded the same way we are there would be changes in a hurry. Now to find a way to grade congress and the Senate on how they do their job. If they don’t pass there are gone. Drop outs, unemployed but gone.

    DOT and FMCSA are to busy collecting revenue to see if what they do is having their alleged results, or if they are even legal.
