Running a bit behind on my podcasting schedule, so this is a just a quick reminder that the FMCSA has extended the commenting period on the New Proposed Hours Of Service Rules until October 21. Check out that link for my thoughts on the newly proposed rules. October 21 is just a few days, so don’t delay! Go and submit your comments now!

Want to hear something pathetic? There are over 3 million CDL holders in the United States, but there are only 7,500 comments submitted so far. That’s pretty lame. If you care enough about trucking to listen to/read the Trucker Dump podcast/blog, then you should care enough to want to give the FMCSA a piece of your mind.

And remember, if you don’t submit your comments, you’ll have no reason to whine and cry about the new rules in the future. And who doesn’t love a good reason to complain? BONUS!

One last thing; if you’ve never submitted a public comment like this before, be sure to check out Tips For Submitting Effective Comments so you don’t sound like a raving lunatic.
