FMCSA posts HOS questions

driver log OVThe Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration is asking people interested in participating in listening sessions on a future hours-of-service rule to consider questions on its website.

The agency posted five areas of discussion on its website in preparation for the listening sessions, scheduled for Jan. 19 in Arlington, Va., Jan. 22, at the Dallas Forth Worth airport and Jan. 25 in Los Angeles. The FMCSA has not announced a fourth session yet.

The topics are rest and on-duty time, restart to the 60- and 70-hour rule, sleeper berth use, loading and unloading time, and general.

The agency said it presented the questions for discussion. It will not necessarily include them in a Notice of Proposed Rulemaking but would request similar information in that document. Answers should be based upon the experience and information participants can share with the FMCSA.

Comments may also be submitted via:

•The Federal eRulemaking Portal at
•Mail to Docket Management Facility, U.S. Department of Transportation, 1200 New Jersey Ave. SE, West Building Ground Floor, Room W12-140, Washington, DC 20590-0001.
•Fax at 1-202-493-2251

Each submission must include the agency name and docket number, which is FMCSA 2004-19608
