    Now is that time to voice your gripe ....


    The U.S. Department of Transportation intends to propose a rule that would change federal hours of service regulations for truck drivers. Nearly seven months to the day after DOT’s Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration began soliciting feedback for a potential overhaul to hours regs, Transportation Secretary Elaine Chao took to a stage before a packed crowd at the Mid-America Trucking Show in Louisville to make the announcement.



    At last year’s Mid-America Trucking Show, you told the Department what you wanted. You wanted flexibility in hours of service regulations. And we listened,” said Chao on Friday.

    She said industry feedback on the ANPRM was instrumental to the DOT’s decision to proceed to the proposed rule stage. “We asked for your participation and you participated.”

    There's this NEW ADDITION (Rider) for ALL DRIVERS, to be implemented in 2020 (should have been implemented in 2000):

    Such "recording" shall certainly inhibit hiring practices, or so it claims. There will still be "drivers" that slip through the cracks since it IS of a federal design.

    I'm almost sure the already in play [ psp ] covers all failed drug tests along with violations. The link you posted is like a follow up to make sure they don't fall off the wagon and get lost
