ABSTRACT
The article offers information on a report released by the U.S. Government Accountability Office (GAO) on the efficiency of the U.S. Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration's Performance and Registration Information Systems Management (PRISM). According to the GAO report, the program which was adopted by 25 states has effectively blocked registration by unfit carriers but the program's impact on crash rates remains unclear. The report added that due to the voluntary nature of the program, a national implementation will not take place.
