Arlington, VA
– The American Transportation Research Institute (ATRI) today launched its third annual commercial driver survey to identify CSA impacts on trucking operations, as well as driver perceptions and attitudes toward FMCSA’s maturing regulatory program. This survey, which specifically seeks commercial driver input, will be compared and contrasted with data collected in 2011 and 2012 – where ATRI received responses from a representative sample of nearly 6,000 drivers (report available online at

The brief on-line survey asks drivers for information on how their perceptions of CSA have changed or been affected as CSA continues its third full year of measuring commercial driver and motor carrier safety performance.  The survey also seeks to capture attitudes toward the program and general understanding of its key components.

Drivers are encouraged to provide confidential input on CSA through ATRI’s survey, available online at  The aggregated and anonymized results of the survey will be available later this year.

ATRI is the trucking industry’s 501(c)(3) not-for-profit research organization.  It is engaged in critical research relating to freight transportation’s essential role in maintaining a safe, secure and efficient transportation system.
