No. 2, NTTC leads fight for rest break exemption

National Tank Truck Carriers--which worked with the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration--deserves plenty of credit for its successful effort to overturn the ill-advised California rest break requirements that would have severely penalized tank truck drivers.

More recently, the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration moved to preempt the California rule for all trucking operations.

Stories on the issue include:

FMCSA grants rest-break exemption for fuel haulers

PHMSA grants NTTC request for exemption from California rest break requirement

FMCSA grants petitions to ensure safe and uniform rest rules in California for truck drivers
