Enforcement Cases

The Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration is responsible for ensuring full compliance with all Federal Motor Carrier Safety Regulations (FMCSRs) required of large truck and bus companies regulated by the U.S. Department of Transportation. This module gives data for five fiscal or calendar years of Enforcement Cases considered “closed” for large truck and bus companies regulated by the U.S. DOT. An enforcement case is deemed "closed" once FMCSA issues a carrier a "Notice of Claim" (NOC) and the carrier has (1) paid the penalty in full, (2) signed a settlement agreement, or (3) defaulted on the NOC, upon which a "Final Agency Order" was issued.
