Video Interview: FMCSA Administrator Discusses Safety Strategy
FMCSA Administrator Anne Ferro conducted a brief video interview in which she defines the FMCSA’s broad safety strategy. The interview, which took place at the February 17 Hours-of-Service listening session, describes the three significant motor carrier safety initiatives that make up the interlocking pieces of the FMCSA’s overall safety strategy.
Those three initiatives - Compliance, Safety and Accountability or CSA program, truck driver Hours-of-Service (HOS) reform, and Electronic Logging, or EOBRs - designed to drive truck accident fatalities lower, focus squarely on driver behavior.
"It's all about the driver. It comes down to how the driver behaves and how well the company is supporting that driver's focus on safety," said Ferro. "It's a whole network of interlocking pieces that impact how the driver behaves…and that includes car drivers.”
Although fatalities in crashes involving large trucks dropped 36 percent from 2005 to 2009, the FMCSA's mandate is to reduce those fatalities even further.
