Type: Rule
Date: 2007-08-07
Agency: Department of Transportation, Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration
FMCSA amends part 393 of the Federal motor carrier safety regulations concerning parts and accessories necessary for safe operation in response to a petition for rulemaking filed by JHT Holdings, Inc. The petitioner requested that the previous provision excepting driveaway-towaway operations from supplying each power unit with a fire extinguisher be reinstated. This amendment is intended to correct that inadvertent omission in the final rule issued on August 15, 2005.
