The Nebraska State Patrol will be conducting informational meetings across the state discussing updated regulations for drivers and operators of commercial vehicles.
The meetings will address updates to the Compliance, Safety, Accountability program, which monitors the on-the-road performance of motor carriers. The program was started in December 2010 and has since implemented new penalties for unsafe driving behavior.
"There have been several updates that should be of interest to all drivers and operators of a commercial motor vehicle, including a ban on cell phones and texting," said Captain Gerry Krolikowski, Carrier Enforcement Division commander. "With all the changes, we would encourage those individuals who have attended in the past, to attend one of the six meetings scheduled for 2013."
