New Safety Rules For Truck Drivers Effectively Reduce Fatigue According to Latest Study

Safety regulations that require more break time for sleep for truck drivers between shifts are effective at decreasing fatigue compared with the previous rules, according to a new study.

Steven M. Sweat‘s insight:

The trucking regulations enacted last year require rest breaks for all truck drivers for each, so-called “duty cycle”, which is basically a 60-70 hour work period.  While many trucking companies and truckers opposed these rules, they appear to be decreasing trucker fatigue according to a recent study by the Washington State University.
