ARLINGTON, Va., Feb. 22 (LID) – American Trucking Associations has filed a legal challenge to the newly-revised federal hours-of-service (HOS) regulations for commercial truck drivers.

ATA President and CEO Bill Graves said the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) rule is fundamentally flawed and will drive costs without improving highway and truck safety.

The Arlington, Va.-based industry trade group petitioned for rule review by the U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia.
