As Part of DOT’s Push to Bring Traffic Deaths to Zero, Biden-Harris Administration Sends Every State Funding for Commercial Motor Vehicle Safety

The U.S. Department of Transportation’s Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) announced approximately $480 million in Motor Carrier Safety Assistance Program grant awards from President Biden’s Bipartisan Infrastructure Law to fund initiatives aimed at preventing crashes, fatalities, and injuries involving commercial motor vehicles…

Funding through the Motor Carrier Safety Assistance Program supports safety inspections of large trucks and buses, investigations of motor carriers in response to safety concerns, and audits of new truck carriers and bus companies to reinforce responsible operation and ensure the safe movement of goods and passengers. The funding also promotes outreach and education efforts that help combat human trafficking, distracted driving, and other roadway safety concerns. The program’s funding amounts are determined by a formula and awarded annually to the lead agency of each state or territory upon completion of an FMCSA-approved Commercial Vehicle Safety Plan.
