CSA and Scoring...The right view!


It still amazes me how difficult the CSA scoring formula is becoming!  Don't get me wrong, I am quite impressed with the overwhelming task that was taken on with the attempt to categorize the severity of a light burning out, or a tire that has gone low, but it seems that there will always be a group or individuals who will point out the wrong and truly fail to see the right!

If we all were to sit around a table and discuss what CSA has truly done for the industry, we all could agree on one thing, it has us focusing on safety like never before!  Yes, we all could say what we dislike, trust me I know, however, it has truly been exciting to see all of us look at safety like never before!  Having safe roads is top priority for all of us!

I know that I am walking a thin line here, we serve many great carriers who seem to get the short end of the stick when it comes to CSA, but this new system in the long run will benefit us all on the road!  My good friend David Saunders of CSS says it best; "fix the truck, you'll fix the score!"  

Now, if we could just fix the inspections!  

Please leave your comment on what you think the CSA scoring system has done for the industry...thank you!
