SPEAK OUT ON DRIVERLESS TRUCKS

06/14/19
  • The USPS has conducted an automotive mail haul pilot program test for a 1,000-mile trip between Phoenix and Dallas.

  • The results of this pilot have not been shared with the public or the Union, something that the MVS Department is greatly concerned about and have demanded a meeting on.

  • Submit a comment or concern to the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration calling for for regulation of automated vehicles for the safety of drivers, citizens, and the future of our jobs!

The Postal Service has said that “this pilot is just one of many ways the Postal Service is innovating and investing in its future.” Currently, regulations are in place that limit the testing and use of automated vehicles. However, the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) and National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) are considering changes to the rules that would allow driverless vehicles on the road.

Automated commercial vehicles and hauling is not an investment in the safety of citizens on the road, professional TTO/MVO drivers, or an investment in the future of USPS skilled labor. But there is something you can do about it:   Submit a comment or concern to the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration calling for for regulation of automated vehicles for the safety of drivers, citizens, and the future of our jobs! Comments will ONLY be accepted on or before July 29, 2019, and can be submitted using docket number FMCSA-2018-0037 or NHTSA-2019-0036 at regulations.gov.

“Big corporations are attempting to substitute automation for skilled and professional drivers,” said Motor Vehicle Service Director Michael O. Foster. “These changes will affect people’s lives and the safety of our streets. The rules and conditions that would allow an automated driverless commercial motor vehicle to operate must be thoroughly investigated and regulated,” Foster cautioned.
