Proposed rule on EOBRs expected at Thursday teleconference

| 1/10/2007

The FMCSA's long-awaited proposal on the use of electronic on-board recorders is scheduled to be announced during a teleconference with reporters Thursday morning, Jan. 11.

The recorders - often referred to by drivers as "black boxes" - are designed to document a driver's hours-of-service compliance.

The Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration's? proposed rule could range all the way from urging voluntary use of the devices, to mandating their use.

Tune in to "Land Line Now" on XM Satellite Radio Thursday to hear the teleconference. Follow-up analysis and news will be available on "Land Line Now" and
