Buckle up for safety

The Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration announced a correction to 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. The correction is effective August 8, 2016. For more information, visit the FMCSA Web site and refer to
Docket No. FMCSA-2015-0396.

Be safe out there. Whether you haul people or property, buckle up.
