CSA Point System | CSA Points
Lookup Driver CSA Points
Every violation which is cited on a DOT inspection has been assigned a violation point value [1 – 10]. If a violation appears on the Driver/Vehicle Examination Report most points are assigned to the CDL truck driver CSA score.
As a CDL truck driver, you must understand that if you do your pre trip inspection and everything is good to go, then you drive 50 miles and a tail light burns out you are at risk.
If the DOT pulls you over for a roadside inspection and discovers the faulty light you will be hit with a 6 severity points. That is 18 CSA points the first year!
The violation points in DSMS (Driver Safety Measurement System) are impacted by time severity. The more recent violation points are weighted more heavily than older violations that occurred within the last year violation points count times three, violations that occurred between one and two years ago count times two, and violations between two and three years old count only once.
