CMV Drivers: The Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) restricts the use of all hand-held mobile devices by drivers of commercial vehicles (CMVs). Any vehicle used for company purposes with a GVWR over 10,000 lbs (F250+) is a CMV. CMV drivers who use a mobile phone while driving must use a hands-free device. Simply, the rules are: No REACHING, No HOLDING, No DIALING, No TEXTING, No READING. It is not only safe practice, it is the LAW, and your job as a CMV driver depends on it.
