Public Citizen v. FMCSA (I)

Auto and Highway Safety
Press Releases:
Case Description: 

Public Citizen, Citizens for Reliable and Safe Highways (CRASH), and Parents Against Tired Truckers (PATT) have successfully challenged the final rule governing the hours of service of commercial truck drivers, issued by the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration. The regulation expands the hours that truckers may legally drive, fails to mandate the use of electronic onboard recording devices to put an end to the pervasive violations of legal limits, and regrettably, is likely to lead to many avoidable deaths and injuries on the nation’s highways.
