If you’re a commercial truck driver, you’ve heard about the new guidelines from the U.S. Department of Transportation’s Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) that revises the Hours-of-Service (HOS) safety requirements for truck drivers.
While the effective date of the HOS Final Rule was February 27, 2012, drivers and companies have until July 1st, 2013 to fully comply with selected provisions of regulations.
We’ve found this page on the FMCSA.dot.gov website to be an excellent resource.
With FMCSA regulations often changing, it’s important to have the most up-to-date information available. Be sure to check out our spiral-bound Federal Motor Carrier Safety Regulations (FMCSR) handbook. It’s easy to tuck away in your cab or office for a quick reference. We also carry a variety of daily driver log books and vehicle inspection reports for easy logging and record keeping.
