The Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) did not renew its emergency declaration and hours of service waiver related to coronavirus pandemic.
The waiver provided regulatory relief to motor carriers or truck drivers who assisted with delivery of essential goods and services during the pandemic.
The waiver was extended multiple times since March 2020, but the FMCSA did not extend the waiver again.
