Did you know that the FMCSA now collects a vast array of information about commercial drivers and Motor Carriers? Without this data the CSA program would not exist. And some of this data is about you – roadside inspections, crashes, and if not familiar with this, you should be the BASIC score.
Motor Carriers and drivers are scored under the BASICS and if you own your own equipment and are the driver with your own operating authority of that vehicle your are not only scored under the motor carrier but also the driver.
BASICs or Behavior Analysis Safety Improvement Categories and they include:
- Unsafe Driving
- Fatigued Driving
- Driver Fitness
- Controlled Substance
- Vehicle Maintenance
- Crash indicator
But did you also realize that when you receive a violation that not all violations will be placed or used in the scoring system.
