Uniform Fine Assessment

Welcome to FMCSA's Penalty Assessments Web Site, an online resource to help the truck and bus industry understand how the Agency assesses penalties. The information and tools provided on this Web site are designed to educate the industry about penalty assessments and include:

  • Links to the rules and regulations that authorize the Agency to assess minimum and maximum penalties for violations of the regulations it enforces;
  • A downloadable software package, known as Uniform Fine Assessment, used by FMCSA staff and its State partners to promote uniformity and consistency in the assessment of civil penalties; and
  • A searchable database of penalties that have been assessed and decisions that have been adjudicated through the Agency.
