The Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) of the U.S. Department of Transportation has set a goal of reducing the large-truck related crash fatality rate by 41% by the end of 2008. To continue the safety record to date and accelerate progress for reaching the 2008 goal, FMCSA has embarked on an initiative entitled "Comprehensive Safety Analysis (CSA) 2010." This effort aims to evaluate the effectiveness of FMCSA's current safety compliance and enforcement programs, and identify better methods of achieving a crash-free environment. The intent of CSA 2010 is to establish an operational model that could be used by FMCSA to confirm a carrier has a safe operation. Conversely, the model would identify unsafe motor carrier operations for focused compliance and enforcement activities. FMCSA understands active and timely participation by its stakeholder community is a key component to the success of the CSA 2010 initiative. Therefore, FMCSA requested the assistance of contract support to help design and conduct a forum to gather stakeholder input. Six Listening Sessions were conducted across the country, allowing participants to attend conveniently within their geographical area. This report highlights the statements expressed by attendees in the Listening Sessions and classifies them into the following themes: 1) Safety Community and Environment, 2) Safety Policies and Business Processes, and 3) Safety Information. Appendices to this report will be added and published in the coming weeks to provide supporting detail for this report.
