WASHINGTON, D.C. — The U.S. Department of Transportation’s Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration has expanded the scope of its 24-hour toll-free driver hotline to include consumer complaints.

The administration is now accepting complaints of violations of the
commercial regulations previously administered by the Interstate Commerce Commission.

The primary focus of the expansion will deal with household goods and hostage load complaints.

The hotline, included in the Motor Carrier Safety Improvement Act of 1999, was established for commercial drivers to report violations of the federal motor carrier safety regulations.

The number is 800-DOT-SAFT
