Civil Fines and Motor Carrier Safety

In this project, the researcher will utilize existing EMIS and MCMIS census data on carrier operation size, type, and commodity classification, and match it up with safety information (i.e., crashes, OOS violations) and enforcement data (e.g., civil penalty amount, settlement type, suspension, reduction in fees, payment plans, etc.) to examine the most effective enforcement approaches for compelling positive changes in safety.
