US department of TransportationFinal Rule: Drivers of CMVs: Restricting the Use of Cellular Phones

It probably comes as no surprise that FMCSA issued its final rule basically banning the use of all handheld cell phones by commercial motor vehicle drivers in INTERSTATE commerce, which becomes effective 30 days after appearing in the Federal Register . Because this new rule comes equipped with a $11,000 fine for employers who fail to require their drivers to comply, you might want to get started if you haven't already banned the use of such devices. Drivers face a fine of up to $2,750 if caught using one. If you'd like to read the rule itself, here is the link to the 66-page doc.
