Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration
WASHINGTON — The head of the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration said the agency continues to move forward on a number of mandates included in last year’s highway funding law.
Speaking Tuesday at the Transportation Research Board meeting here, Anne Ferro said progress on an electronic logging mandate “was moving along at a strong pace,” and a national drug and alcohol clearinghouse rulemaking is “right around the corner.”
In addition, Ferro said FMCSA is also working on specialized knowledge testing for entrants in individual segments of the trucking industry.
Ferro also said FMCSA is involved in new driver compensation and detention time studies, as well as an updated truck crash causation study.
