Successful companies using commercial trucks understand that operating safely is a cornerstone for its success. The Federal Motor Carrier Safety Regulations outline the minimum safety requirements that every regulated company must follow.
The Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration’s (FMCSA) Comprehensive Safety Accountability (CSA) program guarantees most every company operating regulated trucks will be measured for safety compliance on a monthly basis. The CSA program is designed to improve truck and bus safety and ultimately reduce crashes by identifying and correcting poor truck safety operations.
Understanding and implementing programs that meet the regulations is the first step to not only operate safely but operating in compliance. Constant monitoring and taking corrective action is key to continued compliance. Your company can go from a hero in safety compliance to a zero with just one bad inspection and poorly trained driver.

ELD driver logs are a high visibility target for DOT inspectors and auditors. The FMCSRs require carriers to monitor Hours of Service compliance of their drivers using ELDs on a regular basis and to take appropriate action to correct non-compliant behavior. Complying with the DOT HOS requirements means that you perform: A mandatory monthly recap of driver logs, pinpoint driver violations, and check for falsification. These same rules apply whether your drivers hand write their logs or if you use an ELD or AOBRD. ELD HOS data is reviewed for each driver in compliance with this regulation and reports created to assist you in taking action to correct any non-compliant behavior.
HOS (Hours Of Service) violations are one of the most common and costly violations recorded by the DOT.
