On February 28, 2020 (85 FR 12050), the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) published a notice in the federal register requesting comments on its plan to submit the Information Collection Request (ICR) titled “Crime Prevention for Truckers” to the Office of Management and Budget (OMB). This ICR will allow for a study to understand the prevalence, seriousness, and nature of the problem of harassment and assaults against minority and female truckers. If study findings indicate a significant problem that merits action, FMCSA may consider developing training or outreach materials to help truckers protect themselves from crime or harassment. Such training or outreach materials could help foster motor carriers’ employee retention efforts and help make the truck driving profession more attractive to a greater range of people. Please send your comments by March 30, 2020. The OMB must receive your comments by this date in order to act quickly on the ICR.
