ATRI Seeks Truck Driver Input On HOS Impacts

ARLINGTON, Va., Sept. 9, 2013 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- The American Transportation Research Institute (ATRI) today announced the start of its second phase of data collection on impacts from the recent changes to the Hours-of-Service rules, which went into effect July 1, 2013.  ATRI is asking commercial drivers to provide input on the changes through an online survey available on its website, www.atri-online.org.  The survey asks drivers about impacts related to miles, pay and on-duty hours since the changes to the 34-hour restart (requirement of two periods between 1 a.m. and 5 a.m. and the limit of one restart per 7-day/168-hour time period) and the addition of the 30-minute rest break. 

"Earlier this year we released a study quantifying potential impacts from the rules changes.  This critical next step in the research will document how those expected changes are being experienced by drivers," commented ATRI President Rebecca Brewster

ATRI will also initiate data collection from motor carriers to quantify productivity impacts resulting from the rules changes. 

Drivers are encouraged to participate in the confidential survey at www.atri-online.org.

ATRI is the trucking industry's 501(c)(3) not-for-profit research organization.  It is engaged in critical research relating to freight transportation's essential role in maintaining a safe, secure and efficient transportation system.
