The Department of Transportation’s Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration has reported the first two instances of a Mexican motor carrier failing to successfully complete the pre-authorization safety audit required to participate in the ongoing pilot program to test and demonstrate the ability of Mexico-domiciled motor carriers to operate safely in the U.S. beyond specified border zones. While FMCSA is only required to publish comprehensive data and information on the PASAs of motor carriers that are granted operating authority under this pilot, the agency has committed to also publish this information to show motor carriers that failed to meet U.S. safety standards.
