Earlier this week, President Trump had nominated Raymond Martinez as the administrator of the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA). The nomination is currently awaiting confirmation by the Senate. The three prominent trade groups in the industry, namely the Owner-Operator Independent Drivers Association (OOIDA), the American Trucking Association (ATA), and the Truckload Carriers Association, have expressed their support for this decision and have stated that they intend to work closely with the bureaucrat. Members of the trade groups are confident that Martinez will make safety in the industry his top priority especially after he proved his worth as a fair regulator from his service at the New Jersey Motor Vehicle Commission.
The members of the OOIDA are hoping to work with Martinez to encourage decisions that support drivers and eliminate regulations that do not take into account the issues related to safety. The OOIDA is looking forward to introduce Martinez to the drivers.
