Type: Rule
Date: 2012-01-12
Agency: Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration, Department of Transportation
The FMCSA amends its December 3, 2011, final rule that restricted the use of hand-held mobile telephones by drivers of commercial motor vehicles. That rule was jointly issued by FMCSA and Pipeline and Hazardous Materials Safety Administration (PHMSA), but this technical amendment only affects an FMCSA regulation. The purpose of this rule is to correct a clerical error.
