The U.S. Department of Transportation's Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration announced a 60-day extension of the time that motor carriers have to comment on proposed improvements to the agency's proposed Safety Measurement System. The comment period now runs through July 30.


SMS is the workload prioritization tool that helps FMCSA identify motor carriers for safety intervention. During the extension, FMCSA will conduct further outreach to carriers to encourage them to review how proposed enhancements will affect their SMS score and take action to correct potential safety problems before the changes are implemented.

Carriers can access the SMS Preview through either the CSA Website or the FMCSA Portal using the "CSA Outreach" link. For more information about CSA, visit http://csa.fmcsa.dot.gov.
