FMCSA HOS announcement is coming June 7! Or is it? Trucking Answers

    • Careers

The FMCSA is set to announce on June 7 the revised HOS rules they will be using going forward.  After that is a 49 day comment period and then they can go into effect.  Unfortunately, because of the government shutdown the FMCSA now says that the OMB is behind reviewing things and the announcement may be delayed.  Also, they said that they anticipate lawsuits from safety groups and the actual implementation date is still up in the air.  UGH. I also want to touch on the fact that many drivers have been asking for a few hours to be added to the day for traffic or whatever.  This is not the answer.  Companies will use this as unpaid time for the drivers.  Stop fighting to work more with no pay!  Its ridiculous.  Make more, don't work more.  If I could I would make the day 12 hours max.
