Title New Research Shows Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration Safety Measurement System is an Improvement for Identifying At-Risk Companies
Date Posted 2/20/2014
Description New research conducted by the Volpe Center finds that the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration's (FMCSA) Safety Measurement System (SMS) is more effective at identifying commercial bus and truck companies for targeting enforcement than the system it replaced.
