Proposed Truck Regulations Challenged | DC Metro Area Personal Injury Law Blog

5 stars

As recently reported by the International Brotherhood of Teamsters, attorneys representing several safety advocate groups challenged proposed regulations that apply to the number of hours truck drivers may operate their vehicles.  The safety advocates, which include Public Citizen, urged a Court of Appeals to overturn a rule issued in August 2005 by the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (MCSA).

The proposed rule dramatically increases the number of hours that truckers may drive without a break and the number of hours truckers may drive per week.  According to Teamsters General President, Jim Hoffa,  ” There is no excuse for such blatant disregard for the health and safety of the highly trained men and women who are responsible for negotiating big rigs throughout our country.”
