The Motor Carrier Safety Assistance Program (MCSAP) is a
Federal grant program that provides financial assistance to
States to reduce the number and severity of crashes and
hazardous materials incidents involving commercial motor
vehicles (CMV). The goal of the MCSAP is to reduce
CMV-involved crashes, fatalities, and injuries through
consistent, uniform, and effective CMV safety programs.
Investing grant monies in appropriate safety programs
increases the likelihood that safety defects, driver
deficiencies, and unsafe motor carrier practices are
detected and corrected before they become contributing
factors to crashes. The MCSAP Program area includes the
following tools that can be used to assist states in
developing and monitoring their Commercial Vehicle Safety
State Quarterly Report and CVSP Data Dashboard
(Data Dashboard) is a tool that presents quarterly updated
safety data to assist states with preparing their Motor
Carrier Safety Assistance Program (MCSAP) Formula Grant
Quarterly Reports and monitoring MCSAP-funded activities
identified in their Commercial Vehicle Safety Plan (CVSP).
Note: The Data Dashboard presents all safety data reported
to FMCSA’s Motor Carrier Management Information System
(MCMIS) regardless of the funding source.
Electronic Commercial Vehicle Safety Plan (eCVSP)
is an application for FMCSA and State Enforcement users to create and review CVSPs. The tool allows States to enter
information to create a CVSP document and captures comments from Federal stakeholders.
In an effort to continuously improve usability and effectiveness,
enhancements have been made to the eCVSP tool based on State and Federal feedback for the FY17 CVSP. Please contact us with any questions or concerns at 1-877-688-2984.
provides FMCSA and State Enforcement Users the ability to
customize data reports to assist in the development of their
Commercial Vehicle Safety Plan (CVSP).
State Safety Performance Measures (SSPMs)
is a tool designed to assist states with identifying
commercial motor vehicle safety problem areas and
corresponding safety objectives. Two measures have been
developed: Domiciled Carrier Safety and Operating Carrier
Safety. These measures are produced by aggregating carrier
data in the Safety Measurement System (SMS) for the
seven Behavior Analysis Safety Improvement Categories, or
State Data Summary
report provides an
overview of select State safety data, including Active
Carriers and Safety Measurement System (SMS) Summary
results, large truck and bus crash involvements, Enforcement
Programs data (i.e., roadside inspection, traffic
enforcement, and reviews data), and additional information
relating to the State Safety Data Quality (SSDQ) evaluation.
