accurate records can keep drivers on the road.
August 23, 2014, violations can be removed from the FMCSA's Motor Carrier
Management Information System (MCMIS) if they are dismissed or result in a
not-guilty verdict. Because data from the MCMIS is used in a number of systems
— including those at the center of the Compliance, Safety, Accountability
(CSA) program and pre-employment screening program (PSP) — this new policy
will result in a more accurate driver profile. In turn, a record that
includes positive dispositions will help keep drivers on the road and protect
How U.S. Legal Services can help.
With adjudication results being added to the MCMIS database, the
long-term value of a positive outcome to a driver's livelihood is increased.
To take advantage of this, drivers who have the protection of our CDL
Defender™ have access to quality legal assistance that can help them reach
those positive outcomes in the courtroom.
addition, members of our CDL Defender™ legal insurance plan gain these benefits:
U.S. Legal Services pays our network attorneys directly
to represent drivers in local court for their citations.
Our customer service team guides plan members through
the process, reducing the confusion surrounding how to comply.
Our customized reports provide motor carrier safety
teams with accurate and up-to-date information about their fleet's citations
and where they are in the judicial process, including dispositions and MCMIS
network attorneys are well-versed in FMCSA regulations and their effects on
drivers and carriers. When our network attorney appears in court for a driver
and obtains a positive courtroom disposition, either U.S. Legal Services or
the carrier can submit an RDR with the required supporting documentation and have
more accurate information displayed.
