Kentucky Transportation Cabinet issues emergency order for truckers hauling petroleum

Posted: Updated:
FRANKFORT, Ky -

The Kentucky Transportation Cabinet has issued an emergency order to help with the gas shortage in the south.

The emergency order is a waiver that allows truckers hauling petroleum to be exempt from restrictions on hours of service.

That means the truckers can work longer hours and drive more miles without being penalized.

In order for a trucker to take advantage, a copy of the order must be in the truck cab. We have a copy of that order below.

The order is set to expire at midnight on October 5th.

The Kentucky Transportation Cabinet is hoping this will help with the gasoline shortage caused by a pipeline leak in rural Shelby County, Alabama.
