On-Road Performance

A carrier’s on-road performance in each BASIC is based on 24 months of inspection and crash data.

Performance Measure

Carrier violations or crashes are weighted by time and severity to produce a measure for that carrier in each BASIC. The measure only considers individual performance, with a measure of 0 indicating best performance.

Performance Percentile

The SMS calculates a percentile (based on the measure) for each carrier with sufficient information to be compared against carriers with similar safety events (inspections, inspections with violations, crashes). Percentiles are calculated on a 0−100 scale, with 100 indicating worst performance and 0 indicating best performance.

Intervention Threshold

Intervention Thresholds for carriers are organized by BASIC and are set based on a given BASIC’s relationship to crash risk

BASIC Passenger HM General
Vehicle Maintenance 65% 75% 80%

Investigation Results

Acute/Critical Violations

Acute/Critical Violations indicate that a carrier is not complying with federal safety regulations and the carrier must take corrective action.
