How does SMS BASIC Status Relate to Crashes?
The Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) is committed to public safety and continues to identify high-risk motor carriers for early intervention. As part of this commitment, FMCSA conducted a Safety Measurement System (SMS) Effectiveness Test that evaluates the SMS as a workload prioritization tool identifying motor carriers with potential safety problems. The two bar graphs below show results from this test and detail the overall crash rates of truck and bus companies prioritized for intervention in relation to Behavior Analysis and Safety Improvement Categories (BASICs).
