TCA Commends FMCSA on Proposed New Pilot Program

01/15/2021

Alexandria, Virginia: 

On Thursday, the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) announced it will move forward with a new pilot program on adding further sleeper berth flexibility into the hours-of-service regulations.

TCA commends the Agency for this move, as the 6/4 and 5/5 sleeper berth split represent important flexibilities to help professional truck drivers prevent fatigue and drive more safely. We have strongly advocated for FMCSA to take this approach, and we look forward to working with our government partners as they move forward with the rulemaking process.
