DOT Fines updated by the FMCSA

FMCSA Changes Fine Amounts, No More Rounding

The FMCSA amended the Federal Civil Penalties Adjustment Act Improvements Act of 2015, by removing a rounded penalty clause and changing some fine amounts. The new fines will increase with inflation, starting August 1st. Some of the fines will initially increase, and some fines will start off lower than they were last year. They can start lower due to a reset in the inflation calculator. Fines before this Act had been rounded to the nearest 1000. While the majority of fines have increased, they are just marginally.
