Cost-effective safety tools and access to insurance coverage for qualified single-truck operators and small fleets

Thank you, ICSA Truckers!

At ICSA, every week is truck driver appreciation week! However, National Truck Driver Appreciation Week is set aside each year for the rest of America to pay respect and thank professional truck drivers for their hard work and commitment to moving the economy.

ICSA is sponsoring a short member survey, with prizes, to show our appreciation. Every member who logs in and provides contact information will be entered into drawings for new ICSA hats, a $250 gift card and a new RTIC cooler ($350 value) donated by Netradyne, one of ICSA’s newest partners. The member survey will be accessible starting September 7, on this site, through September 30. Thank you, ICSA truckers – and drive safely!

About ICSA

The Independent Carrier Safety Association (ICSA) was established in 2019 as a non-profit 501c6 C-corporation, otherwise known as a Business League.  ICSA’s mission is to improve highway safety by promoting the common safety interests of single-truck operators and small fleets. ICSA fulfills its mission by providing its members with safety tools, including technology, education and training at costs normally reserved for large fleets. ICSA offers two membership categories: Platinum and Gold

In order to join ICSA as a Platinum Member and enjoy all benefits of membership, including discounts on insurance, a carrier must agree to:

  • Meet a minimum safety score prescribed by ICSA and have installed in-cab event recorders. ICSA provides event recorders to members at a low cost they could not get on their own.
  • Sign up for hair drug testing through Texas Alcohol and Drug Testing Service (TADTS) and ensure every driver takes an initial hair test.
  • Implement a zero-tolerance drug and alcohol policy (for carriers with more than one truck). ICSA provides a version to members without charge behind the Member Login at
  • Provide ICSA access to the carrier’s telematics data.
  • Govern truck speeds to no more than 68 miles per hour.

In addition, TADTS manages a drug testing consortium that assists carriers to meet FMCSA drug and alcohol regulations. This consortium is available to ICSA members who wish to take advantage of our TADTS discounted rates. Feel free to discuss consortium enrollment with your TADTS representative.

Carriers that do not wish to apply for insurance coverage may join ICSA as a Gold Member. Dues for Gold Memberships are the same as for Platinum Memberships and offer the same access that Platinum Members enjoy to ICSA’s safety products, consulting, technology, training, and information services. Gold members must become Platinum members if they wish to apply for insurance coverage.

Through its collective buying power and approved vendors, ICSA provides safety and associated services at no cost or at reduced costs that members would otherwise not be able to qualify for on their own.

NOTE: ICSA is currently accepting membership applications but will not be providing access to reduced cost insurance at this time.

Our services include:

  • Access to cost-effective insurance coverage and experienced claims handling for Platinum Members.
  • Reduced pricing on forward-facing event recorders. No one wants to be involved in a collision, but having that event recorded can help to achieve a fair outcome.  Event recorders also allow a carrier to coach drivers on their behavior and can help make good drivers even better drivers!
  • Cost-effective, state-of-the-art hair testing to ensure the highest level of accuracy and help you make sure substance users are not operating your commercial vehicles.
  • Education and a voice in the industry for single-truck operators and small carriers. We know you care about highway safety. ICSA exists to help educate motor carriers, assist you in adopting best practices for truck safety and give you a voice to advance highway safety.
  • A no-cost Model Safety Plan geared to single-truck operators and small fleets that members can adapt to fit their company.
  • FirstGear, a robust online driver training curriculum available to all ICSA members at no cost.
