Sorry for loss

That’s part of the FMCSA regulations, But it refers to a blank line 393.27

CSA:

Compliance, Safety, Accountability (CSA)

The CSA is a Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) initiative to improve large truck and bus safety and ultimately reduce crashes, injuries, and fatalities that are related to commercial motor vehicle

FMCSA:

Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration

The FMCSA was established within the Department of Transportation on January 1, 2000. Their primary mission is to prevent commercial motor vehicle-related fatalities and injuries.

What Does The FMCSA Do?

  • Commercial Drivers' Licenses
  • Data and Analysis
  • Regulatory Compliance and Enforcement
  • Research and Technology
  • Safety Assistance
  • Support and Information Sharing

Fm:

Dispatcher, Fleet Manager, Driver Manager

The primary person a driver communicates with at his/her company. A dispatcher can play many roles, depending on the company's structure. Dispatchers may assign freight, file requests for home time, relay messages between the driver and management, inform customer service of any delays, change appointment times, and report information to the load planners.

Additionaly, § 393.27 is in the middle of a section devoted to truck electrical systems.

The [Reserved] means exactly that: "Watch this space."

We might be able to help out a bit. But remember we are just Truck Stop Lawyers and our legal opinion may not be worth the paper it's printed on.

It would be helpful to know what state the citation was issued in. It could be a reference to the state code.

You get a Gold Star for advice with that observation.

I only know to look, because we had to look at city, county, and state codes a few moons ago while working in justice court.

idaho ..jack buell trucking

I looked up Jack Buell Trucking on one website which showed an accident with a fatality on August 2, 2019 with 3 vehicles involved. FMCSA keeps records for 2 years. I looked around that date and did not find any incidents where a driver/truck got any citations of any kind. So the accident could be in the fatality section of FMCSA, which is not open to the public, tho the other violations/tickets would be. There was another accident with fatality back in 2015, but FMCSA doesn't go back that far.

The website listed the incidences with Crash Date, Report# and Crash Id's. There didn't appear to be a way to get more info. There wasn't any news report either. So, to me, it's hard to say why that violation was used.

Honestly, the best place to start for this information is to do a public records request in the county that issued the citation. If you have driver name, you may be able to get a reproduced copy of the citation, and quite possibly get an answer from the county attorney's office as to what it means in this particular case. There is usually a fee involved (my county charged $10 to even search the name, then $0.25/page of the associated record.)
