Limited Hours of Service Waiver for transportation of fuel

Due to extreme cold weather, the Connecticut Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV) has issued a limited waiver from federal Hours of Service rules for carriers making local fuel deliveries to homes and businesses. The waiver was granted in response to a request filed jointly by MTAC, Connecticut Energy Marketers Association (CEMA), and Propane Gas Association of New England (PGANE).

The waiver only applies while carriers are providing direct assistance via intrastate transportation of diesel fuel, heating oil, kerosene, propane, and gasoline to homes and businesses. The limited waiver is effective from Dec. 28, 2017 to Jan. 19, 2018 at 11:59 p.m.
