Law enforcement, shippers back ATA motion for stay of hours changes
9/21/07
In five separate filings, law enforcement, shipping and trucking interests have come forward to support ATA’s request that the effect of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the D.C. Circuit’s hours-of-service decision be stayed pending the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration’s reconsideration of the 11- and 34-hour provisions. ATA said Thursday, Sept. 20, that the following organizations each have explained to the Court the disruptions to their members that would be caused by a transition to different hours rules:


Commercial Vehicle Safety Alliance, which represents state and federal law enforcement officials, noted that a sudden change to the hours rules would lead to a patchwork of state requirements that would undermine safety enforcement and not allow sufficient time to train law enforcement personnel on a new regulatory regime. “Thousands of law enforcement officers will need to be retrained, which cannot be completed quickly or easily,” CVSA concluded.
