5. FMCSA announces intent to produce speed limiter rule
In March, the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration grabbed headlines when it announced it planned to introduce a rule requiring the use of speed limiters in heavy trucks as early as May 2014, but it was pushed back several times throughout the year. The agency now says it should appear in publication this March.

The Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration on Wednesday will hold a public listening session to hear feedback as part of its process in overhauling the Compliance, Safety, Accountability carrier safety scoring program. 

The meeting will be held at FMCSA’s National Training Center in Arlington, Va., from 9 a.m. to 12 p.m. Eastern. Trucking industry stakeholders will be able to voice their opinions on the agency’s recently announced plan to institute changes to the CSA system. Discussion will center on how the agency can improve the data it receives from states and how it uses that data to score carriers based on their safety performance.

In addition to the in-person meeting, the meeting will be webcast, where public comments can also be made. To register to attend in person, visit this link.
