For Immediate Release

Todd Spencer to chair truck driver panel

Todd Spencer, president of the Owner-Operator Independent Drivers Association, will lead a panel established by the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration. This newly created panel will be comprised of truck drivers that will provide input and feedback to the Motor Carrier Safety Advisory Committee.

The official announcement from FMCSA can be found here.

“We applaud the creation of the panel. It’s long overdue,” said Spencer. “Input from the people on the frontlines is crucial to highway safety and efficiency in moving goods and people. Hearing directly from those most impacted by the traffic environment and rules and regulations can certainly be a tremendous benefit to the agency and also to lawmakers.”
