Preparing Driver Logs in duplicate? PDF Print E-mail

Although 49 CFR 395.8(a)(1) states, ``Every driver who operates a commercial motor vehicle [in interstate commerce] shall record his/her duty status, in duplicate, for each 24-hour period,'' the intent of the requirement may be fulfilled through the electronic submission of a scanned image of the original handwritten RODS to the regular employing motor carrier within 13 days following the completion of the form, while the driver retains the original records for the current day and the previous 7 consecutive days.

Because existing regulations concerning the preservation of records (49 CFR 390.31) allow motor carriers to store electronically a scanned image of the original handwritten RODS submitted by drivers and essentially dispose of the original paper document, there is no adverse impact on the enforcement of the HOS regulations, and subsequently no compromise on the application of the safety requirement by allowing the driver to submit a scanned image of the original signed RODS to the regular employing motor carrier within 13 days of the completion of the record. Motor carriers must maintain the scanned image of the signed RODS and all supporting documents for each driver for a period of six months from the date of receipt (49 CFR 395.8(k)).

UCR Fees 2012

 

If you operate a truck or bus in interstate or international commerce the federal Unified Carrier Registration Agreement (UCR) applies to your business.

 

The UCR requires individuals and companies that operate commercial motor vehicles in interstate or international commerce to register their business with New Mexico and pay an annual fee based on the size of their fleet. The revenues generated will be used for enforcement of motor carrier safety programs. Motor private carriers of passengers only are not required to register and pay fees under the UCR.

 

You must register for calendar year 2012 by February 1, 2012, in order to be in compliance with this filing requirement.

 

For purposes of determining fees, a “commercial motor vehicle” is defined as a self-propelled vehicle used on the highways in commerce principally to transport passengers or cargo, if the vehicle:

 

       (a) has a GVWR or GVW of 10,001 pounds or more;
       (b) is designed to transport 11 or more passengers, including the driver; or
       (c) is used in transporting hazardous materials in a quantity requiring placarding.

Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration

49 CFR Parts 390 and 391

[Docket No. FMCSA-2008-0363]
RIN 2126-AA97


National Registry of Certified Medical Examiners

AGENCY: Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA), DOT.

ACTION: Notice of proposed rulemaking (NPRM); request for comments.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------

SUMMARY: The FMCSA proposes to establish and maintain a National
Registry of Certified Medical Examiners (NRCME) and to require that all
medical examiners who conduct medical examinations for interstate
commercial motor vehicle drivers complete certain training concerning
FMCSA physical qualification standards, pass a test to verify an
understanding of those standards, and maintain competence by periodic
training and testing. Following establishment of the NRCME and a
transition period, FMCSA would accept as valid only medical examiners'
certificates issued by medical examiners listed on the NRCME. The FMCSA
is developing the NRCME program to improve highway safety and driver
health by requiring that medical examiners be trained and certified to
determine effectively whether a commercial motor vehicle driver's
health meets FMCSA standards. The program implements requirements in 49
U.S.C. 31149 and supports FMCSA's goal to improve safety and reduce
fatalities on our Nation's highways.

Medical Certification Requirements as Part of the CDL; National 
Registry of Certified Medical Examiners; Final Rule and Proposed Rule

Medical Certification Requirements as Part of the CDL

AGENCY: Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA), USDOT.

ACTION: Final rule.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------

SUMMARY: FMCSA amends the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Regulations
(FMCSRs) to require interstate commercial driver's license (CDL)
holders subject to the physical qualification requirements of the
FMCSRs to provide a current original or copy of their medical
examiner's certificates to their State Driver Licensing Agency (SDLA).
The Agency also requires the SDLA to record on the Commercial Driver
License Information System (CDLIS) driver record the self-certification
the driver made regarding the applicability of the Federal driver
qualification rules and, for drivers subject to those requirements, the
medical certification status information specified in this final rule.
Other conforming requirements are also implemented. This action is
required by section 215 of the Motor Carrier Safety Improvement Act of
1999 (MCSIA).
