How Trump’s Two-for-One Regulation Repeal Affects Truckers How Trump’s Two-for-One Regulation Repeal Affects Truckers
How Trump’s Two-for-One Regulation Repeal Affects Truckers

If regulations could be repealed for the trucking industry, what would this look like? Would it mean that the dreaded electronic logging rule and speed limiter mandate will never see the light of day? This is what the majority of truck drivers are hoping, as well as most trucking companies. Trump was elected with the campaign promise of cutting back federal regulations, and so far he’s holding to his statement.

He is now requiring that regulations cannot be approved and passed into the Federal Register unless two regulations are removed in the process. While safety advocates and lobbyists for various regulatory processes are sounding alarms, there is hope among truckers that some of the latest regulations, particularly those with the FAST Act Bill, will be repealed.

Regulations for Truckers Cause for Alarm

One of the biggest concerns facing truck drivers right now is the push for new, large-scale regulations. These include:

  • Speed limiter rule mandate
  • Electronic logging device or ELD mandate
  • Hair sampling for drug testing
  • A Drug and Alcohol Clearinghouse database where all drug test results for truckers are contained indefinitely
  • New truck driver training requirement in order to get a CDL or endorsements

The point of these regulations are to make highways safer for the general public by restricting and controlling truck drivers. Yet the more truckers are regulated by the federal government, the harder it becomes to focus on the task at hand. Hauling freight is the primary goal for any truck driver trying to make a living. But with all of these new regulations being established, freight carriers including American Central Transport, Bay & Bay Transportation, and Dart Transit Company are spending more in time and money to remain compliant with the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA).

This is one of the reasons that Trump is so popular among truck drivers. He has promised to repeal regulations at a super fast clip. In the latest news Trump demands federal agencies to slash two regulations for every new one approved. So what will this mean for truck drivers and the trucking industry as a whole?

Regulations In Flux

Currently the speed limiter mandate has been put on hold, per Trump’s direct orders. The FMCSA has also tabled the new truck driver training policy indefinitely. While the e-log device rule has not been mentioned yet, truckers have until December for something to be said about this regulation. The hope by many is that the e-log devices will be nixed before they go live. According to Trump’s declaration of cutting two regulations for every new one created, there is a strong belief that at least some of the latest trucking regulations will be culled.

At the same time the new administration and president has yet to remove any regulations successfully. The promise of reducing regulations by 75 and even 80 percent has simply not been realized at this point. There is also a current lawsuit set against Trump and Secretary of Transportation Elaine Chao that states cutting regulations at this pace is unconstitutional. So will the new president be able to achieve what he hopes to accomplish? That is the question every truck driver is waiting to hear answered.

Reason for Cutting Trucking Regulations

The majority of truck driving regulations set forth by the federal government through the FMCSA are focused on highway safety. After all, that is the primary mission of the FMCSA, to protect the public highways and ensure safety for passenger car drivers and commercial haulers. Therefore, all of the regulations we see are created with that in mind. The problem here is that truck drivers themselves are second-place to safety regulations. Sure, certain regulations like hours of service rules are intended to make it safer for truckers by reducing fatigue. Yet this particular regulation is so convoluted that it almost takes a mathematician to calculate HOS for a trip.

Also, these regulations, such as electronic logging devices, discount any real-life variables that disrupt a trucker’s life, such as weather conditions or road work. As a result, most regulations that the federal government has established should either be reformed with truckers as the primary focus, or repealed altogether.
