Docket ID: FMCSA-2012-0006
Agency: Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA)
Parent Agency: Department of Transportation (DOT)
This rulemaking will remove the CFR sections put into place by the vacated final rule 2126-AA89. On April 5, 2010, FMCSA issued a related final rule (RIN 2126-AA89) that required the use of EOBRs by motor carriers with significant hours-of-service violations (75 FR 17208). A petition for judicial review was filed with the Seventh Circuit. On August 26, 2011, the court vacated the final rule due to how driver harassment was addressed by it.
