Scott Darling Makes Unscheduled Appearance But Keeps Low Profile

Eugene Mulero/Transport Topics

LOUISVILLE, Ky. — Sporting a Boston Red Sox cap and a beige trench coat when he arrived, Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration head Scott Darling kept a low profile while visiting the Mid-America Trucking Show on March 27.

Agency spokesman Duane DeBruyne told Transport Topics that Darling, the agency’s chief counsel who is a lifelong New England sports fan, talked to several drivers at the agency’s information booth. FMCSA had about a dozen employees at the booth sharing regulatory information.

Darling, DeBruyne explained, was not scheduled to make the trip to Louisville for the show, but a scheduling window that had popped up recently afforded him the opportunity to attend MATS for the first time.

“Like everyone, once you’ve been to MATS, you can’t wait to return next year, so I am confident the chief counsel will be back,” added DeBruyne, who was not with Darling at the show.
