U.S. DOT UNVEILS HOURS OF SERVICE REGULATIONS

The U.S. Department of Transportation (U.S. DOT) issued proposed new regulations April 25, 2000, that could increase the regulatory burdens faced by transportation construction industry firms that employ truck drivers. The regulations would eliminate the current exemption from hours-of-service regulations for industry truck drivers operating within a 100-mi radius from their home base, require states to regulate intrastate truck operators consistent with the new federal draft regulations, limit an operator's on-duty time, and mandate collection of data on independent contractors or owner-operators.
