Pegasus TransTech announced that, in response to requests from a number of its fleet customers, it is providing drivers with a free, easy method to provide feedback to the U.S. Department of Transportation concerning the proposed hours-of-service regulation changes.

Pegasus TransTech has joined the American Trucking Associations to encourage feedback by allowing drivers to use Transflo Express truck stop scanning to send their letters. Letters are available at Pilot, Flying J and Love’s truckstops and can be sent from those locations using Transflo Express with no charge to the fleets or drivers.

“We are immensely grateful to Pegasus TransTech and their travel center partners for their support of our hours-of-service campaign,” says Rob Abbott, ATA vice president of safety policy. “Given the nature of the proposed changes, it is critical that DOT hear from as many drivers as possible. This process will make it easier and more likely for drivers to offer their thoughts.”

With Transflo Express, drivers hand their delivery documents to a cashier for scanning at truckstops including Pilot, Flying J and Love’s; in seconds, these documents are sent electronically to the fleet for immediate billing and payroll processing. The feedback letters will be sent directly to ATA, which will forward them to the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration.
