The primary mission of the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA), according to their website, is to reduce crashes, injuries and fatalities involving large trucks and buses.
The FMCSA was established as a separate administration within the U.S. Department of Transportation (DOT) on January 1, 2000, pursuant to the Motor Carrier Safety Improvement Act of 1999. FMCSA is headquartered in Washington, DC and employs more than 1,000 people in all 50 States and the District of Columbia, all dedicated to improving the safety of commercial motor vehicles (CMV) and saving lives.
