Jim Mullen, acting director of the FMCSA, announced today at the TCA conference in Florida that the final rule in the HOS debate has been sent to the Office of Management and Budget for review. This is the last step before the rule makes it to the books. Mind you, he would NOT say what the final rules were or if they were even close to what has been proposed. I considered doing a video on this but I will wait until we actually know what the rule is going to be. There is no timeline for the OMB to take the next step. It could be next week or next year. Once they approve the rule I believe it is then set to publish and we will find out exactly what it will be. The FMCSA has said the best rule is where no one is completely happy, whatever that means. I can't even guess on what is in store and the FMCSA is not talking. As soon as the new rule is published I will let everyone know what we will have to deal with.
Don't let someone run a red light and accuse you of being in the wrong. Your license is your paycheck. Protect it with a good dash cam like THIS one. I use it and I think you should, too. If a picture tells 1000 words imaging what a video can say.
See you on the road!
