DEPARTMENT OF TRANSPORTATION 
Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration and Pipeline and Hazardous Materials 
Safety Administration 
49 CFR Parts 177, 383, 384, 390, 391, and 392 
Docket Nos. FMCSA-2010-0096 and PHMSA-2010-0227(HM-256A) 
RINS 2126-AB29 and 2137-AE65 
Drivers of CMVs: Restricting the Use of Cellular Phones 
AGENCY: The Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) and the Pipeline and 
Hazardous Materials Safety Administration (PHMSA), DOT. 
ACTION: Final Rule. 
SUMMARY: FMCSA and PHMSA are amending the Federal Motor Carrier Safety 
Regulations (FMCSRs) and the Hazardous Materials Regulations (HMR) to restrict the use of 
hand-held mobile telephones by drivers of commercial motor vehicles (CMVs). This rulemaking 
will improve safety on the Nation’s highways by reducing the prevalence of distracted drivingrelated 
crashes, fatalities, and injuries involving drivers of CMVs. The Agencies also amend 
their regulations to implement new driver disqualification sanctions for drivers of CMVs who 
fail to comply with this Federal restriction and new driver disqualification sanctions for 
commercial driver’s license (CDL) holders who have multiple convictions for violating a State 
or local law or ordinance on motor vehicle traffic control that restricts the use of hand-held 
mobile telephones. Additionally, motor carriers are prohibited from requiring or allowing drivers 
of CMVs to use hand-held mobile telephones.
