he past year has seen continued legislative
and regulatory activity affecting the trucking
industry. However, unlike recent years, much
of the regulatory activity in 2017 brought

resolution to several critical industry challenges.
Chief among these actions was a final
determination on the Federal Motor
Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA)
Hours-of-Service (HOS) provisions,
the removal of the barriers toward the
implementation of FMCSA's Electronic
Logging Device (ELD) mandate and a
final rule on the minimum entry-level
CDL training requirements.

| SPRING/SUMMER 2018

In March 2017, FMCSA released findings
from its study on the impacts of the
HOS restart provisions as mandated by
Congress in December 2014.1 FMCSA's
study "did not find that the requirement
for at least two nighttime periods of rest
and the prohibition on taking more than
one restart per week provided a greater
net safety benefit than the previous

restart regulations..." while also finding
that "the restarts benefitted the ability
of drivers to recover from fatigue and
sleep loss regardless of the restart
provision used."2 As such, the 34-hour
restart rule was restored in full force,
while the other restart provisions will
not be enforced.3
FMCSA's ELD mandate also overcame
several last-minute challenges to its
implementation, ending a protracted
process and ensuring that the mandate
would go into effect on December 18,
2017. The Supreme Court denied the
Owner-Operator Independent Drivers
Association's request for a rejection of
the rule on June 12, 2017. 4 A final effort
to delay the ELD mandate by members
