FRANKFORT, KY (Tue 11 Sep 2018) - In anticipation of Hurricane Florence and its potential to cause damage to the southeastern United States, Kentucky Transportation Cabinet Secretary Greg Thomas has waived certain regulations on commercial motor carriers involved in the relief effort.
Secretary Thomas issued the emergency declaration that provides temporary regulatory relief for crews heading to the affected areas to deliver goods, restore utilities and remove debris.
"Lifting these restrictions allows crews to assist with the relief effort as quickly as possible," Secretary Thomas said.
The order exempts a driver's hours of service limitation and weigh station stoppage, suspends registration requirements, and waives permit fees for overweight/over-dimensional vehicles. All other safety requirements will remain in effect for drivers.
The declaration expires on October 11, 2018.
