FMCSA Proposes Tougher Procedures on Reincarnated Carriers

A new rule proposed by the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration would make it tougher for carriers that have been sanctioned to reincarnate themselves under a new identity.

The agency is proposing to change its procedures in several areas affecting truck lines, intermodal equipment providers, brokers, freight forwards and hazmat proceedings.

It wants to clarify that paying a full civil penalty in an enforcement proceeding would not give the entity the ability to unilaterally avoid an admission of liability.

It also wants to review out-of-service orders before they go into effect on reincarnated operations that have a history of breaking the rules.

And it wants to consolidate the records of reincarnated entities with their predecessors' records.

The notice was posted in yesterday's Federal Register. Comments are due by Jan. 12, 2012.
