FMCSA Proposes Punishing Carrier Operating Authority for Patterns of Safety Violations

Posted in on Wed, Nov 28, 2012

The Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) has proposed amendments to its regulations that would enable the Agency to suspend or revoke the operating authority registration of motor carriers that have shown egregious disregard for safety compliance or that permit persons who have shown egregious disregard for safety compliance to act on their behalf. These amendments would 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), and are designed to enhance the safety of commercial motor vehicle (CMV) operations on our nation’s highways.  Comments are due January 14, 2013.  http://www.gpo.gov/fdsys/pkg/FR-2012-11-13/html/2012-27569.htm
