Agriculture HoS Exemption Waiver

Hi All! The FMSCA place a waiver for livestock haulers last year but was set to expire Feb 28th 2022. Do anyone know if this has been extended? I've been looking all over but figured one of you all may have seen it somewhere. TIA!! Below is the provisions on the waiver...:

A provision in the infrastructure bill recently signed into law expanded the miles agricultural truckers can drive without the HOS restrictions. Divers hauling livestock already were exempt from the HOS rule for the first 150 air miles of their runs. Now they also will be exempt from HOS rules for the final 150 air miles from their final destination, providing additional flexibility to ensure drivers can safely complete their deliveries while protecting other drivers and ensuring the welfare of the animals in their care,

HOS Suspended in GA

Hi All! Georgia's governor suspended the HOS rule due to the severe storms.

I tried reading up but can't see how WHO this affects. Is it those delivering relief goods or those traveling through?

OTR Driver Sourcing..

Hi All! Curious to know how you were linked up with your current carrier or previous employers. What job boards did you find yourself on, or did you come across the opening on a forum such as this?

Carrier Safety Incentives

Hi All! What type of safety incentive programs do your carriers provide?

Looking to get more engagement from my team, so I'd love to know what you all have with your company. Specific to annual performance, quarterly, monthly, specific metrics you're assessed on or that fall under the safety incentive umbrella? Any incite is helpful!

Prohibited Items in Your Truck?

You all are hilarious! Yes, I am referring to in cab items; grill plates, hot plates, items like that. Obviously hostages are a given...all cabs come equipped these days I am sure rofl-1.gif

Prohibited Items in Your Truck?

The standard drugs and alcohol, passengers unless approved.

Why do you want to know what their reasoning is? The trucks belong to the company, unless one is a LO or 00, so it's not my place to question why not.

Curious as to various company policies pertaining to in cab furnishings. I'm glad to see several don't allow drugs/alcohol rofl-3.gif I am not a driver, I work for a carrier in Safety. I've found through my experience some of the best knowledge comes from individuals who have been doing this of years, so just curious!

Prohibited Items in Your Truck?

Hi All, Do any of your carriers prohibit you from carrying specific items in your truck? If so, what items and what is their reasoning?

Any Cross-Border Truckers?

Is anyone here being affected by the cross-border vaccine mandate Canada has going into effect?

Yes, my outfit is affected. The advice I got on this site when I brought it up was to get the vaccine or quit. Got the impression that since it affects such a small minority of drivers, it’s not a big deal.

Yea, it is a small group, but my company has a Canadian division that crosses multiple times daily so we're being impacted like crazy...

Very curious to hear how companies are handling this and how you all are feeling about it.

Apologies if this is not an appropriate topic.
