FMSCA Final Rule on Patterns of Safety Violations by Motor Carrier Management

Posted in on Fri, Jan 31, 2014

The Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) has published a final rule amending its regulations to enable it to suspend or revoke the operating authority registration of for-hire motor carriers that show egregious disregard for safety compliance, permit persons who have shown egregious disregard for safety compliance to exercise controlling influence over their operations, or operate multiple entities under common control to conceal noncompliance with safety regulations.  These amendments implement section 4113 of the Safe, Accountable, Flexible, Efficient Transportation Equity Act: A Legacy for Users (SAFETEA-LU), as amended by section 32112 of the Moving Ahead for Progress in the 21st Century Act (MAP-21).  The effective date is February 21, 2014.   http://www.gpo.gov/fdsys/pkg/FR-2014-01-22/html/2014-01174.htm
