FMCSA Holding Public Session on Hours of Service in Santa Barbara

Posted in on Wed, Oct 24, 2012

The Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) announced it is holding a public listening session to solicit information, concepts, ideas, and information on hours-of-service (HOS) requirements for drivers of passenger-carrying commercial motor vehicles (CMVs). Specifically, the Agency would like to know what factors, issues, and data it should consider as it determines preliminarily whether the HOS regulations applicable to these drivers need to be changed to decrease the risk of fatigue-related crashes. The session, which will be held in Santa Barbara, CA, will allow interested persons to present comments, views, and relevant new research that FMCSA should consider in drafting a Notice of Proposed Rulemaking (NPRM). All comments will be transcribed and placed in the docket for FMCSA’s consideration. The entire day’s proceedings will be webcast.  The listening session will be held on Tuesday, October 30, 2012, in Santa Barbara, CA. The listening session will be held from 1:15 p.m. until 5:30 p.m., LT, or earlier, if all participants wishing to express their views have done so.
