IMPACT OF LOCAL/SHORT HAUL OPERATIONS ON DRIVER FATIGUE: FOCUS GROUP SUMMARY AND ANALYSIS
Researchers sought to determine if fatigue is an equally important factor in influencing the safety of local/short haul truck operations as it is in influencing the safety of long-haul commercial vehicle operations. Accordingly, researchers conducted focus groups in eight cities, across five states. The purpose of these sessions was to gain an understanding of the general safety concerns related to the local/short haul trucking industry and specifically, if fatigue is a safety-critical issue in local/short haul trucking.
