Tomorrow--February 17, 2011--the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration will hold a public listening session on a proposed rule revising hours-of-service (HOS) requirements for commercial truck drivers. FMCSA Adminsitrator Anne Ferro and other officials will be on hand to hear your questions and comments.
From 10:00 a.m. until 5:00 p.m. EST, the public can participate by phone (1-866-254-5938, passcode 191857) or by watching the webcast.
Hours-of-service requirements are designed to help prevent accidents, injuries and fatalities by prescribing on-duty hours and rest periods for commercial drivers.
As part of the webcast, FMCSA officials will also take online comments and questions from the public starting at 12 noon until 12 midnight EST. You can submit your questions or comments using the webcast page.
Our goal tomorrow is to hear what you think about the proposed rule. Whether you're a driver, safety advocate, enforcement official, truck company owner, union representative, or anyone with a concern about this proposed rule, this is a great opportunity to get involved in the rulemaking process..
I know you have lots to say about this proposed rule. We look forward to hearing from you.
