Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration August 7, 2013 – Federal Register Recent Federal Regulation Documents

Inspection, Repair, and Maintenance; Driver-Vehicle Inspection Report
Document Number: 2013-18981
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2013-08-07
Agency: Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration, Department of Transportation
FMCSA proposes to rescind the requirement that commercial motor vehicle (CMV) drivers operating in interstate commerce, except drivers of passenger-carrying CMVs, submit, and motor carriers retain, driver-vehicle inspection reports when the driver has neither found nor been made aware of any vehicle defects or deficiencies. This proposed rule would remove a significant information collection burden without adversely impacting safety. This proposed rule responds in part to the President's January 2011 Regulatory Review and Reform initiative. Finally, this proposed rule harmonizes the pre- and post-trip inspection lists.
