Regulatory Update Insurance, Speed Limiters, and Scoring



The agency’s Safety Fitness Determination rule has been in the works since June 2007, and it would allow the agency to use a data set similar to the one it uses for its Compliance, Safety, Accountability program’s Safety Measurement System rankings to produce an actual score for carriers. It would then use the scores to target unsafe carriers.

In the DOT’s June report, the projected publication date for the proposed rule is Dec. 17. FMCSA is projected to send the rule to the White House’s Office of Management and Budget Sept. 8. Both of those dates are unchanged from the May report.

If a business owner does not price his service to cover his cost and still make a profit in response to market conditions, it is not the fault of anyone but himself if he ends up folding.
