Hours Of Service Major Concern Among Trucking Execs


Well-Known Member
Hours-of-Service regulations and an ongoing shortage of professional drivers are two of the top 10 concerns for fleet managers in the US.

That was the finding of a detailed study conducted by the American Transport Research Institute (ATRI) and released here today as part of the American Trucking Associations annual management convention. The survey was based on responses from more than 5,000 American trucking executives.

Other top 10 issues included: fuel issues; congestion; government regulations; tolls and highway funding; tort reform and legal issues; truck driver training; environmental issues; and on-board truck technology. In 2006, a similar study found the top trucking industry concerns were the driver shortage and fuel issues. ATA plans to use the survey’s findings to help steer its policy initiatives, the association announced.

Where is the part that they talk about their concern over how it affects the drivers income and ability to get proper rest when they really need it?

Oh wait, they don't give a damn :)
