FMCSA Official Defends New CSA App


John Sommers II for Transport Topics

LOUISVILLE, Ky. — A Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration senior official at the Mid-America Trucking Show defended a new smartphone application designed to facilitate access to certain performance data, a feature strongly opposed by the industry.

“Having that information right at your fingertips is something that everybody can do,” said Anne Collins, FMCSA’s associate administrator for field operations, on March 28. “It works pretty well.”

Collins encouraged people to download the app, saying that doing so ultimately would improve roadway safety. The QCMobile app that launched March 17 retrieves data from FMCSA’s network and offers law enforcement officers and safety inspectors the ability to  retrieve information recorded in the agency’s Compliance, Safety, Accountability program.
