Relying on Drivers to Self-Report?

Relying on Drivers to Self-Report?

A 2005 study, showed that 20%-50% of employers do not receive notifications about their drivers’ conviction in a timely matter.

While employees may be aware of the FMCSA regulations and company policies to self-report, they may not always do so. Reasons to not self-disclose motor vehicle violations and instead continue to drive include:

  • Fear of losing job
  • Not even knowing license is suspended
  • Erroneously thinking “they will never get caught”
