What do you need help with?

How do I get more information about BASIC alerts?

The FMCSA has a Safety Measurement System that measures carriers on 7 compliance & safety topics:

  • Unsafe Driving
  • Hours of Service Compliance
  • Vehicle Maintenance
  • Controlled Substances and Alcohol
  • Driver Fitness
  • Crash Indicator (data not available to public)
  • Hazardous Materials Compliance (data not available to public)

You can look up your company's data on the SMS website. The SMS data uses your safety violations from the past 2 years, and that data updates once a month. You can see data on the violations and the inspection dates that result in violations. 

You can view the FMCSA's guide on improving your safety scores on the FMCSA website.
