DOT still accepting EOBR, harassment commentary

| May 17, 2012

The Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration is still accepting comments from the public concerning electronic onboard recorders and their potential to be used to harass drivers.

FMCSA is seeking comments relative to what would constitute driver harassment and how it is possibly facilitated by EOBR devices. Specific questions FMCSA has asked at public listening sessions include:

  • What will prevent harassment from occuring?
  • What types of harassment already exist?
  • How frequently and to what extent does harassment happen?
  • How will an electronic device such as an EOBR, capable of contemporaneous transmission of information, guard against (or fail to guard against) harassment?

Comments can be made here by clicking the “Comment Now!” button at the top right.

    Oh yea..The Topic…harassment??? Well at LEAST the public and the cops can SEE..that drivers ARE harassed and ordered around against their will..with the THREAT of termination or Punishment..in the form of crappy loads to some horrible place etc etc…sometimes Much Worse things may befall a driver who is Not Obedient..and wont drive when he is tired…….so the CAT is out of the back..drivers ARE FORCED to break the law by the companies they work for..or suffer the consequences….
