The Specialized Carriers & Rigging Association (SC&RA) is urging all motor carriers to keep their lease on-hand.

Under current regulations, a motor carrier operating a vehicle owned by another entity is required to either carry a copy of the lease in the cab of the vehicle, or carry an official statement that clarifies the relationship between the operator and the vehicle owner.

This regulation must be followed even if the lessor and lessee of the vehicle are related entities or subject to common ownership.
