FMCSA waives HOS limits for drivers hauling heating fuels
This week’s widespread cold snap has led to yet another waiver on HOS limits, proving once again that safety isn’t so important when it’s inconvenient to anybody other than truck drivers. At a time when drivers hauling flammable heating fuels should be more rested and alert than ever, the absolute nature of the HOS rules becomes not so absolute.
Drivers hauling propane and heating fuel in more than half the country have been granted an HOS waiver until the end of the “emergency” or February 11th, whichever comes first. Check out the FMCSA website for more details.
