Mandatory Information Sharing with Prospective Drivers
June 8, 2021
Beginning October 1, 2021, any FMCSA regulated employer with more than one driver and a place of business in the state must provide a driver with its U.S. DOT number and the website address for FMCSA’s Safety and Fitness Records (SAFER) system when it makes an offer of employment. The legislation was introduced in response to a tragic fatal crash involving a company that has since had its operating authority revoked by FMCSA. MMTA supported this effort because it will help drivers identify and avoid working for those companies that have subpar safety records, thereby benefitting the many safe trucking companies in the state.
