FMCSA Announces Changes to Reporting of Adjudicated Citations
The Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) announced that beginning August 23, 2014, motor carriers and drivers will be able to request the removal of roadside inspection violations from agency data systems to more accurately reflect outcomes of judicial proceedings. The updated policy will enable carriers and drivers to request, through the DataQs system, the removal of violations when a driver is found not guilty or if a violation is dismissed in court. FMCSA systems will continue to retain and display violations that result in a conviction or payment of fine. Persons who plead to or are convicted of a lesser charge will also have that information reflected. The policy only applies to inspections conducted on or after August 23, 2014 and is not implemented retroactively.
The FMCSA has also announced a package of enhancements to the Safety Measurement System (SMS) website. The enhancements provide clearer descriptions and easier, more intuitive navigation features.
