TSA Warns Against Truck Ramming Attacks
A new report from the Transportation
Security Administration (TSA)
advises that U.S. truck owners and
truck rental agencies must be "vigilant" about the increasing frequency

of "ramming attacks" by terrorists
using vehicles to kill people. Owners,
operators and rental agencies are
warned to protect their vehicles from
theft. The report notes that, in the

past three years, at least 173 people
have been killed and more than 700
wounded in 17 ramming attacks
around the world. Of those 17 attacks,
13 resulted in fatalities.

FMCSA Proposes Two New Rules to Address Driver Shortage
In response to the national shortage
of qualified truck drivers, the Federal
Motor Carrier Safety Administration
(FMCSA) recently announced two
proposals, designed to simplify
obtaining a commercial driver's

license (CDL) and streamline administrative expenses for both applicants
and state licensing agencies. The first
proposal would allow state driving
agencies to waive the CDL knowledge test for qualified veterans and

active-duty personnel applying for a
civilian CDL. The second proposal
would allow states to issue a CDL
learner's permit that would expire in
up to a year, instead of the current
six-month limit. n
