II. Background On January 21, 2016 (81 FR 3562), FMCSA published an NPRM to amend the current methodology for issuance of SFDs for motor carriers. From February 3 to 5, 2016, the American Moving and Storage Association (AMSA), Transportation Intermediaries Association (TIA), and the Transportation & Logistics Council, Inc. (TL Council) petitioned the Agency for a 60-day extension of the comment period. On February 16, 2016, the Owner Operator Independent Drivers Association (OOIDA) petitioned the Agency for a 90-day extension of the comment period. A copy of the AMSA, TIA, TL Council, and OOIDA petitions are included in the docket referenced at the beginning of this document. After reviewing the requests, FMCSA has decided to grant a 60-day extension (to May 23, 2016, for initial comments and to June 23, 2016 for reply comments) to provide all interested parties adequate time to submit comments on proposals in this rulemaking. In addition, Rebecca M. Brewster, President and Chief Operating Officer of the American Transportation Research Institute (ATRI), informed FMCSA that the NPRM incorrectly cited an ATRI study (81 FR 3562, at 3567, third column) on the Agency’s Behavioral Analysis and Safety Improvement Categories (BASICs) and their relationship to crash risk. The study erroneously cited by FMCSA was a qualitative study of motor carrier, driver, law enforcement and shipper survey data. The ATRI study on the BASICs was released in October 2012 and is titled ‘‘Compliance, Safety, Accountability: Analyzing the Relationship of Scores to Crash Risk.’’ It involved an analysis of carriers assessed by BASICs. The results confirmed that FMCSA’s Safety Measurement System (SMS) is better at targeting carriers and identifying safety problems than the current SafeStat, the Agency’s previous intervention prioritization system. In addition, the ATRI study indicated that the number of ‘‘alerts’’ a carrier has is the best indicator of future crashes. FMCSA has included the correct report in the docket for the public’s consideration of the Carrier Safety Fitness Determination NPRM.

II. Background

    On January 21, 2016 (81 FR 3562), FMCSA published an NPRM to amend 
the current methodology for issuance of SFDs for motor carriers. From 
February 3 to 5, 2016, the American Moving and Storage Association 
(AMSA), Transportation Intermediaries Association (TIA), and the 
Transportation & Logistics Council, Inc. (TL Council) petitioned the 
Agency for a 60-day extension of the comment period. On February 16, 
2016, the Owner Operator Independent Drivers Association (OOIDA) 
petitioned the Agency for a 90-day extension of the comment period. A 
copy of the AMSA, TIA, TL Council, and OOIDA petitions are included in 
the docket referenced at the beginning of this document. After 
reviewing the requests, FMCSA has decided to grant a 60-day extension 
(to May 23, 2016, for initial comments and to June 23, 2016 for reply 
comments) to provide all interested parties adequate time to submit 
comments on proposals in this rulemaking.
    In addition, Rebecca M. Brewster, President and Chief Operating 
Officer of the American Transportation Research Institute (ATRI), 
informed FMCSA that the NPRM incorrectly cited an ATRI study (81 FR 
3562, at 3567, third column) on the Agency's Behavioral Analysis and 
Safety Improvement Categories (BASICs) and their relationship to crash 
risk. The study erroneously cited by FMCSA was a qualitative study of 
motor carrier, driver, law enforcement and shipper survey data. The 
ATRI study on the BASICs was released in October 2012 and is titled 
``Compliance, Safety, Accountability: Analyzing the Relationship of 
Scores to Crash Risk.'' It involved an analysis of carriers assessed by 
BASICs. The results confirmed that FMCSA's Safety Measurement System 
(SMS) is better at targeting carriers and identifying safety problems 
than the current SafeStat, the Agency's previous intervention 
prioritization system. In addition, the ATRI study indicated that the 
number of ``alerts'' a carrier has is the best indicator of future 
crashes.
    FMCSA has included the correct report in the docket for the 
public's consideration of the Carrier Safety Fitness Determination 
NPRM.
