| March 03, 2011

The public comment period ends March 4 for proposed rulemaking on hours-of-service requirements for commercial vehicle drivers.

The Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration has placed three additional documents in the public docket concerning the cumulative fatigue function, coefficient estimates and an explanation of coefficient names as requested by the American Trucking Associations. It also added an Excel spreadsheet containing data using the formula in the HOS Regulatory Evaluation to link the hours worked in the previous week to fatigue the following week.

The agency also made a number of clerical corrections to the HOS proposed rule. A list of corrections to the NPRM can be found <a href=http://www.ofr.gov/OFRUpload/OFRData/2011-03267_PI.pdf> here</a>.
