Truck Anti Safety Bill Introduced in Congress by Rep. Barletta

September, 2014

Dear Care for Crash Victims Community Members:


“A member of the House Transportation & Infrastructure Committee has introduced legislation (H.R. 5532) that would order the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) to stop publishing individual motor carriers’ scores under the Compliance, Safety, Accountability program until the agency has improved the data, according to a plan it would submit to Congress. The bill, sponsored by Rep. Lou Barletta (R-PA), also would prevent scores under CSA and the Safety Measurement System that underlies it from being used in crash liability cases.”  See NHTSA data on crash fatalities in Rep. Barletta’s district shows that each year since 2002 about 2 fatalities occur in an average week — about 100 per year.  See my crash death mapping tool for each Congressional district for fatalities over the past decade at,875765.608846319,-3093254.85263374,8576895.45964956  

If  Pennsylvania constituents only knew….
