ARLINGTON, Va. – The American Trucking Associations (ATA) has thrown it support behind the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration’s (FMCSA’s) interim ruling to retain the current US hours-of-service rules. The association testified before a Senate Subcommittee, expressing its support for the interim final rule. The interim final rule retains the 11-hour driving day and 34-hour reset provisions.
Dave Osiecki, vice-president of safety, security and operations with the ATA, told the Subcommittee on Surface Transportation, Merchant Marine Safety and Security and Infrastructure, that the current rules enhance truck safety. He said the current HoS rules are “balanced” and promote driver alertness through natural work and rest cycles, while also allowing operational flexibility for carriers.
