Enforcement Programs Overview

A&I’s Enforcement Programs inform FMCSA’s ability to improve safety on our roads by detailing carrier, driver, and vehicle enforcement data. This data is organized in summary reports that provide a meaningful overview of State and national statistics. Data collected through the enforcement programs helps identify areas to improve safety monitoring and impact the decisions FMCSA makes to reduce crashes, prevent injuries, and save lives.

To view the summary reports and to learn more details about FMCSA’s enforcement programs, select any report from Enforcement Program Activity Reports, Motor Carrier Reports, or Program Effectiveness Reports below. You can also view these reports from the links in the navigation to the left.
