Concerns remain as driver coercion rule set to take effect

Posted By Administration, Friday, January 22, 2016

Effective January 29, the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration's (FMCSA) driver coercion rule, called the Prohibiting Coercion of Commercial Motor Vehicle Drivers rule, will take effect. NASSTRAC is pleased that several of the worst features were removed from the final rule, which will not impose on shippers, intermediaries or receivers a "duty to inquire" as to whether drivers are complying with all safety requirements for the services requested. There are stiff penalties for those found to have committed coercion, with fines reaching up to $16,000 per occurrence (Logistics Management).
