Anne Ferro is the Administrator of the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration. Administrator Ferro is committed to protecting the traveling public by eliminating severe crashes and fatalities involving large trucks and buses.

Ms. Ferro serves as the head of an agency that carries out its safety mission through a strategic mix of programs, rules and enforcement tools based on three principals, to: raise the bar for motor carrier safety; require high safety standards to operate, and remove unsafe carriers and drivers from our roads.

In her first two years, Administrator Ferro has led FMCSA's actions to fulfill its safety-focused mission, including rules to ban texting and hand-held cell phone use for truck and bus drivers; an hours-of-service rule for trucking to reduce the risk of fatigue-related crashes; a strengthened enforcement platform known as Compliance, Safety and Accountability; and targeted enforcement activities and consumer outreach to prevent unsafe passenger carriers from operating on our roads.

Prior to her appointment to the FMCSA, Ms. Ferro led the Maryland Motor Truck Association as its President and Chief Executive Officer from 2003 to 2009; and served as the State of Maryland's Motor Vehicle Administrator from 1997 to 2003.
