Program Accomplishments
Within FY 2016 the following national safety elements were reached:3,294,578 CMV safety inspections conducted 412,487 CMV traffic violations identified 35,769 safety audits of new motor carriers conducted 6,269 compliance investigations of motor carriers initiated, and 878,919 out of service safety violations identified. The above accomplishments were achieved by the 55 States and U.S. Territories that were recipients of MCSAP funds within FY 2016. These efforts provided the majority of national CMV and passenger carrier safety enforcement supported through FMCSA. Fiscal Year 2018: Within the current fiscal (FY 2018), over 2 million CMV inspections have been conducted under the auspices of this program, leading to safer highways with over 400,000 out of service (OOS) violations issued. This data also feeds FMCSA’s various safety data systems, allowing the Agency and its State partners to direct enforcement resources as necessary. The FMCSA has also launched its multi-year Commercial Vehicle Safety Plan (CVSP) project, allowing States to submit Plans (required for MCSAP eligibility) covering a three-year time span. This reduces administrative burdens on the State and FMCSA, while also enhancing the ability to effectively assess commercial vehicle safety impact over a specific time-period. Fiscal Year:2019:Fiscal Year 2019: According to the FMCSA’s most recently published Large Truck and Bus Statistics, over 3 million CMV inspections have been conducted under the auspices of this program, leading to safer highways with over 600,000 out of service (OOS) violations issued. This data also feeds FMCSA’s various safety data systems, allowing the Agency and its State partners to direct enforcement resources as necessary. The FMCSA has also launched its multi-year Commercial Vehicle Safety Plan (CVSP) project, allowing States to submit Plans (required for MCSAP eligibility) covering a three-year time span. This reduces administrative burdens on the State and FMCSA, while also enhancing the ability to effectively assess commercial vehicle safety impact over a specific time-period, Fiscal Year: 2020, description: Fiscal Year 2020: According to the FMCSA’s most recently published Large Truck and Bus Statistics, approximately 3.4 million CMV inspections have been conducted under the auspices of this program, leading to safer highways with over 670,000 out of service (OOS) violations issued. This data also feeds FMCSA’s various safety data systems, allowing the Agency and its State partners to direct enforcement resources as necessary. The FMCSA finalized the launch of its multi-year Commercial Vehicle Safety Plan (CVSP) project, allowing States to submit Plans (required for MCSAP eligibility) covering a three-year time span. In addition, the FMCSA was able to complete critical updates to its MCSAP calculation formula (for use in FY 2021) and regulatory framework as required under the Fixing America’s Surface Transportation (FAST) FiscalYear:2021:According to the FMCSA’s most recently published Large Truck and Bus Statistics, approximately 3.4 million CMV inspections have been conducted under the auspices of this program, leading to safer highways with over 670,000 out of service (OOS) violations issued. This data also feeds FMCSA’s various safety data systems, allowing the Agency and its State partners to direct enforcement resources as necessary. FMCSA successfully implemented the new MCSAP allocation formula and regulatory framework as required under the Fixing America’s Surface Transportation (FAST) Act.FiscalYear:2022, As the current surface transportation authorization (FAST Act) expires on September 30, 2021, the FMCSA anticipates awarding funds as appropriated by Congress and allowed under new authorization legislation. Dollar amounts by State will be determined by the allocation formula.

Fiscal Year 2016: Within FY 2016 the following national safety elements were reached: 3,294,578 CMV safety inspections conducted; 412,487 CMV traffic violations identified; 35,769 safety audits of new motor carriers conducted; 6,269 compliance investigations of motor carriers initiated, and 878,919 out of service safety violations identified. The above accomplishments were achieved by the 55 States and U.S. Territories that were recipients of MCSAP funds within FY 2016. These efforts provided the majority of national CMV and passenger carrier safety enforcement supported through FMCSA. Fiscal Year 2017: Within the current fiscal (FY 2017), the following national program elements have been supported through the MCSAP grant: 2,065,980 CMV safety inspections conducted; 253,782 CMV traffic violations identified; 21,544 safety audits of new motor carriers conducted; 4,025 compliance investigations of motor carriers initiated, and 553,738 out of service safety violations identified. The data obtained from these safety interventions are uploaded and maintained within FMCSA's safety data information technology systems, which are accessed by Federal, State and local law enforcement organizations responsible for highway safety. This allows both Federal and State entities to direct enforcement resources as necessary. Funded projects will also include safety data improvement, maintenance of deployed innovative technology projects, and participation in the Performance and Registration Information Systems (PRISM) program. Fiscal Year 2018: Within the current fiscal (FY 2018 - YTD), the following national program elements have been supported through the MCSAP grant: 2,485,204 CMV safety inspections conducted; 315,494 CMV traffic violations identified; 24,763 safety audits of new motor carriers conducted; 4,404 compliance investigations of motor carriers initiated, and 474,386 out of service safety violations identified.

Information about the changes in the program can be found within the FMCSA Motor Carrier Safety Assistance Program Comprehensive Policy located on the FMCSA website https://www.fmcsa.dot.gov/mission/grants/grantee-resources. While the FMCSA expects State pandemic related responses to have an impact on CMV safety activities (inspections, investigations, etc.), public safety is not expected to be impacted as MCSAP agencies will focus on efforts which minimize exposure; Fiscal Year 2022: Based upon the FMCSA's most recently published Large Truck and Bus Statistics, the following national program elements have been supported through the MCSAP grant: 3,346,894 CMV safety inspections conducted; 432,129 CMV traffic violations identified; 40,221 safety audits of new motor carriers conducted; 5,360 compliance investigations of motor carriers initiated, and 671,373 out of service safety violations identified.
