D.R.I.V.E. – Safe Act | Infographic

In 2018, a bill was issued in both houses of US Congress called the DRIVE-Safe Act. This bill is designed to combat driver shortages by allowing commercial drivers, ages 18-20, to drive commercial motor vehicles interstate.

Current federal law states that these drivers are currently legal for intrastate transit, but cannot cross state lines.

The bills were introduced by Representative Duncan Hunter (R-CA) in the House of Representatives, and Senator Todd Young (R-IN) in the Senate. Each bill has significant, bi-partisan support in both chambers, has been introduced to the general assembly, and is being considered by the Subcommittee on Highways and Transit.

This is the content of the bill.
