MCSAC Driver Subcommittee

FMCSA has launched a new subcommittee of commercial drivers to its Motor Carrier Safety Advisory Committee (MCSAC). This subcommittee will provide direct feedback to FMCSA on important issues facing the driving community—like safety, hours-of-service regulations, training, parking, and driver experience. 

This new panel of drivers is composed of 24 drivers from all sectors of the commercial motor vehicle (CMV) industry— tractor trailer drivers, straight truck drivers, motorcoach drivers, hazardous materials drivers, agriculture haulers, and more. Our goal is to capture the wide array of viewpoints and experiences within the CMV community. Subcommittee meetings will be held via videoconference and scheduled in advance to maximize attendance and minimize impact on members' schedules. Members will incur no direct costs and the Agency will provide no financial compensation. 

The subcommittee membership is the following:
