Federal Response to Ida Includes Regulatory Relief for CMV operators

- Hours-of-service flexibility for truckers, mobile crane operators, and other CMV’s involved in critical relief efforts is one element of the federal government’s response to Tropical Depression Ida. Ida made landfall as a Category 4 hurricane Aug. 29. The Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration on Aug. 29 issued a regional emergency declaration offering relief from regulations related to maximum driving time provisions for property-carrying vehicles and passenger-carrying vehicles. The declaration encompasses Alabama, Arkansas, Louisiana, Mississippi, Tennessee and Texas and applies to drivers who are providing direct assistance in support of emergency relief efforts. SC&RA has been in communication with the federal government and stands ready to assist members with regulatory relief advocacy. For more information, contact Chris Smith.
