Closed Enforcement Cases

The Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration is responsible for ensuring full compliance with all Federal Motor Carrier Safety Regulations (FMCSR) required of truck, bus and motorcoach companies regulated by the U.S. Department of Transportation.

On this website, all closed FMCSA enforcement cases are listed by fiscal year. An enforcement case is deemed "closed" once FMCSA issues a carrier a "Notice of Claim" ( NOC) and the carrier has (1) paid the penalty in full, (2) signed a settlement agreement, or (3) defaulted on the NOC, upon which a "Final Agency Order" was issued.

FMCSA enforcement cases are initiated following compliance reviews, complaint investigations, terminal audits, roadside inspections, or other investigations.

Yearly Enforcement Case Lists

Each yearly enforcement case list contains the following information:

  • The carrier's USDOT number,
  • The name of the carrier, shipper, freight forwarder, or broker involved,
  • The carrier's city and state,
  • The FMCSR violation(s) resulting in an enforcement action
  • The total amount settled, and
  • The FMCSA Case Number.
