ATRI looking for driver feedback on HOS impacts

Sept. 11, 2013

Drivers are being asked to contribute to new American Transportation Research Institute (ATRI) research being conducted on the hours-of-service rules which went into effect on July 1, 2013.

ATRI is collecting data on the changes and wants to hear from drivers about the effects they are feeling from the changes. The survey is available at 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,” said ATRI President Rebecca Brewster. 

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

The survey is confidential, ATRI said.
