HOS Rules Suspended For Emergency Supply Carriers

If you’ve been to the Northeast in the past few days, you’ve probably seen whole towns without power, buried under the 40 inches of snow brought by winter storm Nemo. While repairs are well under way, some families are still without power, and emergency supplies are being hauled in to help get homes repaired and heat back up and running.

The good news is that relief is getting to the people that need it as quickly as possible. The FMCSA has temporarily suspended HOS rules for drivers carrying emergency supplies, specifically fuels like propane, natural gas, and gasoline. The states that have received waivers are New York, Maine, and New Jersey.
