Evaluation of the Impact of Changes in the Hours of Service Regulation on Efficiency, Drivers and Safety

This study was conducted in an effort to add knowledge to the issue of hours of service rules that regulate commercial truck drivers. Drivers, carriers, and society in general would appear to experience positive net gains from a change in the cumulative hours of service rules from the current 70-in-8 day rule to a 24-hour restart provision. These positive gains would consist of increased driver income, improved scheduling flexibility, a potential for increased time at home, increased economic efficiency, and improved safety, as well as gains in other areas.
