how to submit comments

As you are well aware, government agencies such as FMCSA, FHWA, and NHTSA each have their own safety mission statements and agendas, which has resulted in the trucking industry today facing ever increasing regulations and mandates.  Therefore, it is essential that the experiences, views, and voices of professional truck drivers and small business owners who truly represent the trucking industry are heard.  Thus, the OOIDA Foundation would like to provide a brief instruction on how to submit comments online to the variety of notices, NPRMs, information collection requests (ICRs), and final rules that are published on the Federal Register. 

You may submit comments identified online by following the instructions below:

  1. Click on the following link regulations.gov
  2. Enter the Docket Number into the “Keyword” box, and click search. (The yellow highlighted box below designates the “Keyword” box and an example of a Docket Number.)
