Section 5222 of The Fixing America’s Surface Transportation Act (FAST Act) requires the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) to allow recognition, including credit or an improved Safety Measurement System (SMS) percentile, for motor carriers that: 1. Install advanced safety equipment; 2. Use enhanced driver fitness measures; 3. Adopt fleet safety management tools, technologies, and programs; or 4. Satisfy other standards determined appropriate by the Administrator. These four actions are indicative of a motor carrier whose safety programs go “beyond compliance” with the minimum safety regulations mandated by FMCSA. The Beyond Compliance program would incentivize motor carriers to incorporate those actions into their safety programs. The primary purpose of this ICR is to perform an exploratory analysis on how motor carriers view the relative importance of various motor carrier safety program elements that lead to safe operations (Attachment A). The input received from motor carriers will supplement information already gathered from in-depth interviews on motor carrier safety programs with nine high-performing carriers. To accomplish this, the study will complete the following objectives: 1. Identify high-performing carriers in terms of safety performance. 2. Determine the safety technologies, programs, and policies employed by these carriers. The data being collected for this study consists of responses from a select group of motor carriers on the most effective technologies, programs, and policies for achieving safe operations. The study is an exploratory analysis that relies on input from carriers that exhibit safe operations exceeding industry averages as indicated by driver out-of-service rates, vehicle out-of-service rates, and crash rates. To identify these carriers, the study will utilize existing data from the Motor Carrier Management Information System (MCMIS) database.
