FAST ACT: CSA safety rankings removed from public view

The FAST Act highway funding law took effect, well, fast.

Contained in the new highway law signed by President Obama late Friday afternoon, is a provision removing Compliance, Safety, Accountability safety program rankings from public review while the program is studied.

Just minutes after the announcement that the Fixing America’s Surface Transportation Act had been signed into law, the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration announced that in order to comply with the congressional directive, the CSA site will not display a vast majority of previously viewable information, in order to retool the site.

“As of Dec. 4, 2015, pursuant to the FAST Act of 2015, much of the information previously available on the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration’s (FMCSA) website related to property carrier’s compliance and safety performance will no longer be displayed publicly,” the agency announced in a press release. “While the agency is not prohibited from displaying all of the data, no information will be available for property carriers while appropriate changes are made.

“FMCSA is working to return the website and app to operation as quickly as possible.”
