FMCSA posts large truck and bus stats

Resource summarizes industry’s performance data

Posted June 20, 2017

The Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) recently published the “2017 Pocket Guide to Large Truck and Bus Statistics.” The agency has a role of collecting and analyzing data on large trucks and buses, and this compact reference provides highlights of the data it gathers.

The statistics contained in the report offer insight into:

  • Overall state of the industry,
  • Enforcement activity,
  • Details on traffic violations and other incidents, and
  • Costs of crashes.

FMCSA has indicated the Pocket Guide will be updated periodically as it collects and analyzes new data.

The Pocket Guide incorporates and replaces the one-page data summaries, “Commercial Motor Vehicle Facts,” published occasionally over the past 10 years. The online document may be viewed on the FMCSA website.
