DVIR Elimination if No Defects Found

Yesterday, the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration eliminated the regulation requiring commercial vehicle drivers to submit and retain Driver-Vehicle Inspection Reports when the driver has neither discovered nor been made aware of any vehicle defects.
The FMCSA found that the time saved by eliminating the paperwork required by the DVIR rule will relieve the trucking industry of 46.7 million working hours and save $1.7 billion per year. In addition, the FMSCA stated that eliminating the DVIR rule would not have any negative safety impacts because other regulations still require drivers to conduct pre-trip inspections.
The elimination of the DVIR requirement takes effect immediately, but is not eliminated for passenger-carrying commercial motor vehicles, such as busses.
