Motor Carrier Liability May Stick After Fines

WASHINGTON (CN) - The Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration has clarified that when motor carriers and others pay full proposed civil penalties for violations, it does not allow them to unilaterally avoid an admission of liability.

Additionally, the FMCSA has established procedures for issuing out-of-service orders to motor carriers, intermodal equipment providers, brokers, and freight forwarders it determines are reincarnations of other entities with a history of failing to comply with statutory or regulatory requirements; these procedures provide for an administrative review before the out-of-service order takes effect.

The FMCSA also has established a process for consolidating its records of reincarnated companies with their predecessor entities.
