Department of Transportation Authority to Exempt Canadian Truck Drivers From Criminal Liability for Transporting Explosives

Date of Issuance:

The Department of Transportation possesses the authority to issue a regulation that, under section 845(a)(1) of title 18, would exempt Canadian truck drivers from criminal liability under section 842(i) of that title.

The Department of Transportation, however, has not issued such a regulation, and therefore section 842(i) liability would attach to a Canadian truck driver transporting explosives in the United States.
