Driver panel applications deadline

Today, FMCSA will consider applications from drivers who would like to be on the agency's new subcommittee. As a reminder, last month, FMCSA stated that it wants to receive feedback from drivers on a number of issues and innovations proposed by the agency in order to see the priorities and vector of further development.

The agency plans to select about 25 drivers from different industry sectors to get as many comments as possible from different perspectives on safety issues, driving hours, training programs, parking, etc.

To send an application to all interested drivers, they had to send their resume with the specified qualifications, experience, and valuable information that could position the driver as a suitable candidate. Also, drivers could attach a recommendation letter to their application, but this is not required.

FMCSA Acting Administrator Wiley Deck said: "The Department of Transportation and this administration believe in listening to our drivers and hearing their concerns directly. We know that many of the solutions to the challenges we face don't come from Washington. They come from the hard-working men and women who are behind the wheel all over our nation. This new subcommittee to MCSAC will further help us hear from America's commercial drivers."
