NRECA submitted comments with EEI and APPA on the Notice of Proposed Rulemaking entitled Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standards; Federal Motor Carrier Safety Regulations; Parts and Accessories Necessary for Safe Operation; Speed Limiting, proposed by the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) and the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA). NRECA, EEI, and APPA oppose the concepts in the Notice of Proposed Rulemaking. Utility drivers have above average safety records, below average number of speeding violations and would be adversely impacted by the cost of future technology if required of manufacturers, and the cost of retrofitting existing vehicles.
