How will CSA 2010 impact INTRA STATE carriers?
*All carriers and drivers will be assessed under the same criteria and given appropriate safety scores
*Intrastate carriers are not currently subject to Interventions with any State of Alaska penalty.
*Not until legislation is in place will Alaska be able to have any meaningful interventions with carriers requiring it.
*Interstate carriers placed Out-of-Service by FMCSA cannot operate in intrastate commerce.
*Intrastate carriers are not generally subject to the Federal Out-of-Service orders, however all carriers are subject to drug and alcohol program and CDL requirements. Examples are: Carriers that violate the requirements contained in the drug and alcohol program or CDL are subject to a Federal action including being placed Out-of-Service.
