Heated Debate Erupts Over CSA Data

A heated debate was sparked last month at the American Trucking Associations Management Conference & Exhibition in Orlando. Steve Bryan, head of Vigillo, went toe to toe with Bill Quade, FMCSA. Both questioned the data collected by the FMCSA. Bryan used the data to ask why most trucking violations occur from BASIC maintenance, rather than traffic violations such as speeding. Quade countered by saying that inspectors who look at a vehicle’s maintenance have training to know exactly what they’re looking for, whereas cops give out traffic violations. He then accused Bryan of misusing the data. For more on the heated debate, you can read the full article here.
