To reduce the numbers of highway accidents involving distracted commercial motor vehicle (“CMV”) drivers, the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA), an Agency of the U.S. Department of Transportation, has issued a notice of proposed rulemaking that would prohibit motor carriers from texting while driving in interstate commerce. The proposed rule, published in the Federal Register on April 1, 2010, is based upon DOT’s statutory obligation to ensure that CMVs are operated safely, and that driver activities do not impact their ability to operate CMVs safely.
