§392.3 Ill or fatigued operator.
No driver shall operate a commercial motor vehicle, and a motor carrier shall not require or permit a driver to operate a commercial motor vehicle, while the driver’s ability or alertness is so impaired, or so likely to become impaired, through fatigue, illness, or any other cause, as to make it unsafe for him/her to begin or continue to operate the commercial motor vehicle.
Question 1: What protection is afforded a driver for refusing to violate the FMCSRs?
Guidance: Section 405 of the STAA (49 U.S.C. 31105) states, in part, that no person shall discharge, discipline, or in any manner discriminate against an employee with respect to the employee’s compensation, terms, conditions, or privileges of employment for refusing to operate a vehicle when such operation constitutes a violation of any Federal rule, regulation, standard, or order applicable to CMV safety. In such a case, a driver may submit a signed complaint to the Occupational Safety and Health Administration.
I elected him!!!!...
I missed the memo, thanks.
Yeah but you don't have to call someone out because they aren't as diligent as you when it comes to posting with correct spelling and grammar.
I'll admit that I'm the worlds worst speller. I use Foxfire and it has a built in spell checker. Ever once in a while I'll have to change a word because the one I started with is misspelled so bad that the spell checker does even have a suggestion.
