New Federal Motor Vehicle -Cell phone Law in effect 1/1/2012

The final rule prohibits commercial drivers from using a hand-held mobile telephone while operating a commercial truck or bus. Drivers who violate the restriction will face federal civil penalties of up to $2,750 for each offense and disqualification from operating a commercial motor vehicle for multiple offenses. Additionally, states will suspend a driver’s commercial driver’s license (CDL) after two or more serious traffic violations. Commercial truck and bus companies that allow their drivers to use hand-held cell phones while driving will face a maximum penalty of $11,000. Approximately four million commercial drivers would be affected by this final rule

I'm pretty sure it applies to anyone that has commercial tags on thier trucks.

As a company you must have a cell phone policy in affect for any drivers who may use your vehicles. It must be signed and dated by each employee so that the company will not be hit with the 11,000 fine.
