Fmcsa to give guidance on the Personal Conveyance as it pertains to the HOS loses for truckers .
electronic log rule now in effect, the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration is considering revising a much older but related regulation. Per an announcement published in the Federal Register for Dec. 19, the agency is proposing to revise its regulatory guidance on commercial-vehicle drivers legally using trucks as “personal conveyance” while off duty.
FMCSA noted it is seeking public comment on this guidance and its economic impact for a 30-day period ending on Jan. 18.
“The previous guidance, which required the CMV to be unladen, was written for combination vehicles, where the driver could readily detach the trailer and use the unladen tractor for personal conveyance,” the proposal said.
Examples of appropriate uses of a CMV while off-duty for personal conveyance now include, but are not limited to, time spent traveling from a driver’s en route lodging (such as a motel or truck stop) to restaurants or entertainment facilities and back to the lodging.
The new guidance also would permit drivers to use personal conveyance for commuting from the last location where on-duty activity occurred to his or her permanent residence and then back to that last on-duty location. Examples of those locations include the driver’s terminal, trailer-drop lot or work site, according to FMCSA.
The new guidance would not permit movement of a CMV to enhance the operational readiness of a motor carrier, such as moving the CMV closer to its next loading or unloading point or other motor carrier-scheduled destination, regardless of other factors, according to FMCSA.
Other improper uses of personal conveyance include continuation of a CMV trip in interstate commerce, even after the vehicle is unloaded, bobtailing or operating with an empty trailer to retrieve another load, or repositioning a CMV and/or trailer at the direction of the motor carrier.
FMCSA is seeking comments on the guidance for 30 days after its posting in the Dec. 19 Federal Register.
