Industry organizations aim to help professionals understand proposed trucking safety regulations
In the wake of the passage of CSA 2010, some truck drivers may have questions or concerns about new regulations. Furthermore, as new proposals are presented by the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA), these professionals may find themselves in an even deeper state of confusion.
Fortunately, many organizations are working to ensure that members of this industry are able to understand and share their opinions on the changes that will affect their work.
For instance, the FMCSA recently called for comments on its proposed rule concerning hours-of-service requirements. Beginning December 29, the administration began welcoming public feedback on the prospective regulation.
Following this period, the FMCSA will use the suggestions it has received to influence any changes that may be made to the rule.
In an effort to help concerned members of the transportation industry understand the commenting process, Truckers for a Cause is hosting an informational conference call, Truckinginfo reports. The organization suggests that individuals who wish to share their thoughts read over the FMCSA documents themselves and base their suggestions on their own personal conclusions, rather than basing them on secondhand information.
