DOT/FHWA RIN: 2125-AD64 Publication ID: Fall 1997 
Title: Rules of Practice for Motor Carrier Proceedings; Investigations; Disqualifications and Penalties 
Abstract: The FHWA proposes to amend its rules of practice for motor carrier safety, hazardous materials, and other enforcement proceedings, motor carrier safety ratings, driver qualification proceedings and its schedule of penalties for violations of the FMCSRs and the Hazardous Materials Regulations. The FHWA further proposes to add provisions on investigative authority and procedures and general motor carrier responsibilities. These rules would increase the efficiency of the procedures, enhance due process and the awareness of the public and regulated community, and accommodate recent programmatic changes. The rules would apply to all motor carriers, other business entities and individuals involved in motor carrier safety and hazardous materials administrative actions on the effective date of the final rule.
