2012 Hand-Held Device Ban
Posted Wednesday, December 7, 2011
Dear NELA members,
 
I am writing to inform you of an important DOT rule change that may effect your operation(s).
 
In brief, the US DOT announced that effective January 3rd, 2012 certain mobile hand-held devices will be banned from use by drivers of commercial vehicles.
 
I have provided an initial review of the rules for your reference as well as links to both the announcement and the rule.
 
Additional information will follow as details are clarified with FMCSA.
 
I urge you to review these findings as well as the announcement link and rules link at the bottom of the review. Click here to read the review.
 
Sincerely,
Steve Skiffington, CEO
