Keeping your CSA score below the threshold is extremely important, however the main goal is saved lives- and safety on the roads. If your business does not comply with the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) it is at risk of being shut down by the Department of Transportation (DOT). The FMCSA has been working at both the federal and state level to provide, implement, and enforce the tools needed to keep organizations in the transportation industry in good standing with their CSA Scores. Again the ultimate goal the FMCSA is trying to achieve with the CSA Scores ranking system is saving lives, and improving on safety.

The new, and improved CSA Operational Model has three major components:
- Measurement – CSA measures safety performance, using inspection and crash results to identify carriers whose behaviors could reasonably lead to crashes.
- Evaluation – CSA helps FMCSA and its State Partners to correct high-risk behavior by contacting more carriers and drivers–with interventions tailored to their specific safety problem, as well as a new Safety Fitness Determination methodology.
- Intervention – CSA covers the full spectrum of safety issues, from how data is collected, evaluated, and shared to how enforcement officials can intervene most effectively and efficiently to improve safety on our roads.
