Start Preamble


Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration, DOT.


Final rule; correction.


FMCSA corrects an error in its June 7, 2016, final rule “Driving of Commercial Motor Vehicles: Use of Seat Belts.” The amendatory language in the final rule inadvertently limited the applicability of the requirement for drivers to use their seat belts to operators of property-carrying vehicles. Today's correction fixes the error such that drivers of passenger-carrying vehicles will continue to be required to wear their seat belts.


Effective August 8, 2016.
