In a recent development, the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) has disclosed its yearly adjustment of fines to accommodate inflation related to violations of trucker regulations. The impending fine increase, set to take effect on December 28, 2023, upon publishing the Final Rule in the Federal Register, aims to align penalties with the rising cost of living.
This adjustment is mandated by the Federal Civil Penalties Inflation Adjustment Act of 2015, requiring federal agencies, including the FMCSA, to augment fines annually. The primary objective is to ensure penalties retain their deterrent impact, reinforcing the importance of adhering to trucker regulations. Stay tuned for further details and insights into how these changes may impact the trucking industry.
