Driving of Commercial Motor Vehicles: Use of Seat Belts; Correction
Document Number: 2016-15941
Type: Rule
Date: 2016-07-06
Agency: Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration, Department of Transportation
FMCSA corrects an error in its June 7, 2016, final rule ``Driving of Commercial Motor Vehicles: Use of Seat Belts.'' The amendatory language in the final rule inadvertently limited the applicability of the requirement for drivers to use their seat belts to operators of property-carrying vehicles. Today's correction fixes the error such that drivers of passenger-carrying vehicles will continue to be required to wear their seat belts.
