FMCSA adds another hours-of-service session

A fourth listening session to gather information about a proposed federal hours of service rule has been added by the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration. 

The session will be Jan. 28 from 1-9 p.m. CST at the Comfort Inn Hotel and Suites, 8300 Northwest Blvd., in Davenport, Iowa. The site, off Interstate 80 at exit 292, is within walking distance of a Flying J Travel Plaza, which has 146 parking spaces.

Additional sessions will be Jan. 19 from 9 a.m.-5 p.m. EST, Doubletree Hotel Crystal City National Airport, Arlington, Va.; Jan. 22, 9 a.m.-5 p.m. CST, Hyatt Regency DFW, Dallas, Texas; and Jan. 25, 9 a.m.-5 p.m. PST, Doubletree LAX, El Segundo, Calif. All sessions are open to the public.

The agency wants to hear from commercial drivers, carriers, owner-operators, safety advocates and others about topics such as rest and on-duty time, sleeper berth use and the effect the current hours-of-service rule has on loading and unloading times for drivers.
