    Roadside inspectors no longer will place Mexican or Canadian truckers operating in the United States “Out-of-Service” if they are unable to communicate in English, according to new Commercial Vehicle Safety Alliance “tolerance guidelines”.+

    CVSA said the procedures will go into effect April 1.+

    The changes were approved by CVSA’s board and the majority of the membership, said Stephen Keppler, executive director of CVSA.

    FMCSA followed suit in a Notice of Proposed Rulemaking (NPRM) indicating that they would no longer include violation of this regulation in roadside inspection reports or the drivers PSP scores.

    OK it is now ON folks. This is the 1st step to bring foreign drivers into the U.S. to take your overpaid (according to the Man) driving job and put someone else in your driver seat.

    Big companies outsource their jobs to foreign countries, they figure why not import cheap labor and put more money in their pockets. Pay a foreign possible terroist $25,000 a year as opposed to paying an American $75,000, yes your job and American dream is at risk.

    The biggest lie ever told is that the Democrats are for the working man. I guess after they dump as many Syrians into this country in Sanctuary Cities, they will probably make them truck drivers.

    Goes to show safety really isn't that concerning.Bring folks in that cannot speak or understand the English language which means they can't read signs.They get in a wreck with someone that cannot speak Spanish and emergency can't speak spanish what happens then.

    I just read today that states are giving illegal immigrants healthcare, since hospitals can not turn away someone who is in pain, but states go ahead and give them obamacare anyways.

    19 trillion in debt and counting. Lets make it 20! 21! lets keep it going. 3 rd world USA

    Makes sense since this was very arbitrary to begin with, subject to the personal bias of whoever was giving the language "test".

    Personally I don't ever think the dot enforced the English speaking rule anyway.

    As far as I understand, the article says the change affects inspections done on Mexican and Canadian drivers operating in the States. Mind you, they can only take a load in or out the States, means international, not domestic. Yet some here are already complaining about cheap labor and foreign drivers about to take their jobs.
