FMCSA, NHTSA, FHWA are the three agencies focused on improving highway safety

FMCSA’s role on research and development comes from the Motor Carrier Safety Improvement Act of 1999 and section 4111 of SAFETEA-LU.  Section 4126 of SAFETEA-LU authorizes the CVISN grant program.  Conducting research and development specifically on truck parking availability comes from a recommendation in an 2000 NTSB report to Congress, and focusing on ITS comes from a recommendation in an 2002 FHWA report to Congress (see links in reference slide).
FHWA’s role in truck parking was defined by Section 1305 of SAFETEA-LU to administer truck parking grants.  Even though SAFETEA-LU has expired, truck parking grants issued under Section 1305 are still active in place. Under MAP-21, no grants are explicitly provided for truck parking.  Capital grants for  truck parking are administered through three  FHWA “umbrella” grant programs in which truck parking projects must compete with other highway projects:
FHWA plans to complete and publish the state-by-state survey of  truck parking capacity, mandated under Jason’s Law,  by the end of 2014
FHWA does research  freight technology & operations (including truck parking)
FHWA also provides technical assistance & education to advance freight technology & operations (including truck parking)

The CVISN program provides a framework or “architecture” that enables government agencies, the motor carrier industry, and other parties engaged in CVO safety assurance and regulation to exchange and use information to improve safety, and to conduct business transactions electronically.
The program is designed to…..[SEE SLIDE]
This map shows the number of states participating in each level – Core and Expanded – of CVISN functionality.
33 states have already achieved Core functionality and are deploying elements of Expanded functionality
All other states (17 states plus the District of Columbia) have deployed some elements of the Core CVISN functionality
