The Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration amends its regulations to enable the Agency to suspend or revoke the operating authority registration of
- for-hire motor carriers that show egregious disregard for safety compliance
- or who permit persons who have shown egregious disregard for safety compliance to exercise controlling influence over their operations
- or who operate multiple entities under common control to conceal noncompliance with safety regulations.
These amendments implement section 4113 of the Safe, Accountable, Flexible, Efficient Transportation Equity Act: A Legacy for Users (SAFETEA-LU), as amended by section 32112 of the Moving Ahead for Progress in the 21st Century Act (MAP-21), and are designed to enhance the safety of commercial motor vehicle (CMV) operations on our nation’s highways.
This will be effective February 21, 2014.
