What is it?
The number of Department of Transport (DoT) violations per 1,000 tractors in a fleet where an SEC (U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission) filing has been made in the last year. The number is derived from the total number of DoT violations divided by the total number of tractors in the fleet based on the most recent self-reported MCS150 report filing by the fleet divided by 1,000.

What does it tell me?
Violations per 1,000 vehicles are a great way to measure how well a fleet is maintained and serviced during preventative maintenance events, how well drivers are conducting pre and post-trip inspections and most importantly, how well drivers are performing on the road.
