Proposed rule restricting cell phone use by truckers sent to White House
from The Trucker
A proposed rule that would restrict the use of cell phones while operating a commercial motor vehicle was sent to the White House Office of Management and Budget Sept. 16 by the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration. According to the abstract of the rule, which is all that is available until it is published after an OK by the budget office, the rulemaking is in response to FMCSA-sponsored studies that analyzed safety incidents and distracted drivers. The rule would also address the National Transportation Safety Board's "Most Wanted List" of safety recommendations.
