HOS waiver for hauling anhydrous ammonia

The Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration is waiving hours-of-service rules until June 21 for drivers transporting anhydrous ammonia.

The FMCSA announced the waiver March 22 for hauling from a distribution point to a farm or consumer within 100 miles of the distribution point.

The waiver is to provide limited regulatory relief for planting that will ultimately result in producing affordable commodities, without compromising safety, the agency said.
