BULLETIN: Minnesota fatigue checklist complaint?

| 5/1/2009

OOIDA has received numerous complaints from drivers being placed out-of-service in Minnesota for fatigue even though they were fully rested and in compliance with the hours-of-service regulations. Commercial vehicle enforcement officers have been sidelining drivers for 10 consecutive hours after an interrogation based largely upon a fatigue checklist developed by the Minnesota State Patrol. 

If you have been put out-of-service for fatigue in Minnesota, please contact the OOIDA Business Assistance Department at 800-444-5791.
