WASHINGTON, D.C. The FMCSA has said it plans to release about 17 new regulations this year, reports the American Trucking Associations (ATA).

The action aims to make a significant dent in a backlog of outstanding rules that have accumulated over several years.
The ATA reports the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) is also exploring possible use of data recorders in trucks for the purposes of hours of service rules enforcement as well as ways to safely disable hijacked trucks.
