Adoption of Rule Pertaining to MCS Safety Assistance
MDT's Motor Carrier Safety Assistance Program (MCSAP) has proposed new rules
and amendments to existing rules to comply with federal review findings.
Proposed New Rule I will describe MDT’s commercial vehicle safety program,
including specific designation of duties and authorities of MCS peace officers,
MCS civilian safety inspectors, and Highway Patrol officers in conducting
roadside inspections and investigations of commercial motor vehicles for
compliance with federal and state safety requirements.
The proposed rule amendments will create a definition of
“hazardous materials shipper” and include hazardous materials shippers
as a group referred to in administrative rules which must comply with
federal and state regulations on transportation of hazardous materials.
MDT is accepting written comment on the proposed new rule and rule
amendments until February 13, 2014, at the address listed on the Notice.
