(from Ch. 95 1/2, par. 18c-4307)
(1) Unapproved Transfers Prohibited.
Except as provided in this Article, no person may enter into
a transaction to accomplish or effectuate, or participate in
accomplishing or effectuating, the ownership, control or
management of any one or more motor carriers, however such
result is attained, whether directly or indirectly by use of
common directors, officers, or stockholders, a holding or
investment company, a voting trust, or in any other manner,
and regardless of whether or not the carrier received
compensation or value from the transaction. Nor shall any
person continue to maintain control or management
accomplished or effectuated in violation of this Article.
The words "control or management," when used in this Article,
shall be construed to include the power to exercise control
(2) Direct Supervision and Control by License Holder Required. The holder
of a motor carrier license shall exercise direct supervision and control
over all operations conducted with vehicles registered under its license
or utilized in conducting operations under its license. The holder may be
called upon to demonstrate that it is exercising direct supervision and
control. Failure to exercise active supervision and control shall constitute
the unauthorized transfer of operating rights in violation of this Chapter.
Where an unauthorized transfer occurs, both the transferor and transferee
shall have committed violations of this Chapter. Nothing contained herein
shall prevent the holder from exercising such supervision and control through
a manager or other bona fide employee of the holder.
Elements to be considered in evaluating whether supervision and control
is being exercised include solicitation; public identification; billing;
collecting; dispatching drivers and equipment; hiring; evaluation and
firing of drivers and other personnel; liability for cargo loss or damage;
and responsibility for payment of carrier expenses.
