The U.S. Department of Transportation’s (DOT) Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration’s (FMCSA) core mission is to reduce commercial motor vehicle-related crashes and fatalities. To further this mission, FMCSA created SAFETYNET ; designed to manage and provide appropriate access for authorized users to crash data, roadside inspection history and data, and motor carrier and shipper identification information. SAFETYNET enables federal and state enforcement officials to access updated motor carrier, commercial motor vehicle (CMV), and CMV driver information collected in the field.

This Privacy Impact Assessment (PIA) was conducted to address privacy risks associated with the SAFETYNET system and its collection and use of Personally Identifiable Information (PII).

DOT is committed to ensuring that information is available in appropriate alternative formats to meet the requirements of persons who have a disability. If you require an alternative version of files provided on this page, please contact
