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.
Affected trucks include model year 2008-2018 Freightliner Cascadia and Western Star 4700, 4900, 5700 and 6900 trucks. DTNA says after hard brake applications, the brake light pressure switch may not activate the brake lights with the light application of the brake pedal.
