Hours of Service of Drivers: Application for Exemption; SikhsPAC and the North American Punjabiz Trucker Association
Notice of application for exemption; request for comments.
FMCSA announces that it has received a joint application from SikhsPAC and the North American Punjabiz Trucker Association (applicants) on behalf of their members for an exemption from the electronic logging device (ELD) requirements. The exemption would allow members involved in segments of America's agricultural transportation industry to delay using ELDs. The applicants expressed their concerns about how the ELD mandate would negatively impact their industry if the exemption is not granted. According to the applicants, granting the exemption would achieve a level of safety equivalent to the level achieved by the ELD mandate. FMCSA requests public comment on the applicants' application for exemption.
